The web is portrayed as an exciting new opportunity for creators.
But the reality is that independently creating, completing, promoting, distributing and retailing a creative work can be really challenging for many of us.
Yet each year, there are more of us who want to transform our creative ideas into products.
These products might be books, videos, a podcast or an image - but we want to get that product out into the market place.
6 Creatives Share Their Content Creation Insights
To show how you can take those first important steps, on January 25th six very different creative individuals - including authors, artists, designers, podcasters, photographers and marketing specialists - are gathering together to share their experiences and insights on how to produce, exhibit, publish and sell photographic or fine art, ebooks or paperbacks, videos, audiobooks or podcasts.

As well as forming an umbrella for all our existing and forthcoming publications, Craving Distraction has also launched the Really Simple Guides to Self-Publishing and Creative Media Projects.
