About the event

Unfortunately, due to room capacity, we cannot open up any more tickets, but we do organise these open days Bi-annually and we’ll be hosting another in the new year, so keep an eye on our monthly newsletter for details.

Know someone who loves books and is considering a career in publishing? Tell them about our open day!

Guest speakers include Desiree Reynolds (author and broadcaster), Cat Mitchell (former Campaigns Executive, Penguin General), Jeremy Poynting (Managing Editor, Peepal Tree Press), Pedro Nelson (Senior Production Manager, Faber Faber), David Barker (former Publishing Director, Bloomsbury Academic), as well as members of the And Other Stories team. We’ll offer insights into the processes of book production, editing, marketing and sales, and we’ll answer any questions you might have.

Lunch is included and all participants will be able to choose a book published by And Other Stories to take away!
