Scouting for Books: Why are Literary Scouts Important in Publishing? with Helen Francis

February 24, 2021

What do literary scouts do? And how do they link authors, publishers, agents with each other and across different media. Join us for this discussion and a chance to virtually meet our experts.

Our host for this event is Helen Francis. Helen is the co-founder of Francis Literary Consultants. Francis Literary Consultants provide editorial and publishing services to writers, not only offering a variety of editorial services to help them improve their work, but also helping to connect them with members of the publishing industry. We're a father and daughter team: Helen has worked in all areas of publishing for 20 years, including 8 years as an editor at Faber and Faber and 2 commissioning fiction at Head of Zeus, and Richard is an academic, historical, novelist and non-fiction writer whose fourteenth book is about to be published.

This event is free for Byte the Book members and £20 plus booking fee and VAT for everyone else.

If you're keen to attend this event for free and to network generally in the publishing industry you can join us from just £36 a quarter via
