Our friends at The Literary Consultancy, are running an excellent course to help all those interested in breaking into the world of books. Here are some more details:
The Literary Consultancy is hosting a 2-day course for aspiring publishers over the weekend of April 21-22 at the Free Word Centre, London. 'Get a Job in Publishing', designed by the Book Skills Collective, offers detailed insight into the behind the scenes of publishing, focusing on practical detail and take-away skills to help you understand where best you might fit into the jobs landscape. The course will cover everything from company structure and roles to practical tips on interviews, CVs, and internships. No degree is required to take part and career-changers are welcome.
Guest speakers include Drummond Moir (Publisher, Sceptre), Yassine Belkacemi (Senior Publicity Manager, John Murray), Joanna Seaton (Production Director, Hodder & Stoughton), and New York Times bestseller and award-winning novelist Chris Cleave. Travel and accommodation support is available for those travelling from outside London.
Come prepared both to learn - about the structure of modernday publishing, and important issues facing the industry today - but also to do, with an inspiring Publishing Simulator to round off the weekend.
