On 2nd March we held our bi-annual ‘Is Publishing for me?’ open day, for aspiring publishers. It was a jam-packed day full of talks, workshops, and an opportunity to network.
We had Niriksha Bharadia and Jude Gatez from Faber Faber, sharing their knowledge on, production and marketing, Eleanor Holmshaw and Katie McLean from the Poetry Business to talk about the ‘lifecycle of the book’ and our very own Stefan Tobler sharing the knowhow of an editors role.
Here is what a few of our attendees had to say:‘Thank you so much @andothertweets for putting on a fantastic event yesterday about #workinpublishing! I learned so much and it was wonderful to meet @Niri_Bharadia and @JudeGatez from @FaberBooks, amongst many other brilliant publishers. I’m feeling very inspired’ – Gemma ‘Had the most amazing and inspiring day at the #workinpublishing day run by @andothertweets – and thank you to @Niri_Bharadia for the insightful marketing workshop (and the book!) Can’t wait to read! #LANNY‘ – Emily ‘Had a blast at the publishing open day held by @andothertweets. The production workshop held by @JudeGatez was fantastic, so inspired and motivated right now.’ – Alice ‘Had a fab day with @andothertweets at their Publishing open day! Great marketing talk from @Niri_Bharadia, feeling really inspired and motivated to get into an industry I’m so passionate about’ – Emma
