We help our members:
Get published - however they want to publish be that via an agent/publisher or to self publish.
Learn - through workshops and events educating them on the latest developments in the book world.
Network - connecting people within publishing and to other industries.
We curate regular events on topical subjects with insight and practical application online and in London and at book fairs around the world. We also have a vibrant online community of over 400 members and some 5,000 subscribers, who support each other in their business endeavours.
Beyond the events, directory listings, and free tickets, authors will meet other authors at different stages of the writing process and be able to share experiences. Byte The Book is an incredibly supportive community for authors and those working in the publishing industry. Writing is often a solitary pursuit and so connection with other writers, be they established or aspiring, is very valuable. Likewise for publishers or publishing consultants, people often get siloed into particular areas. Our events and community help everyone keep up to date with new developments, ideas and interesting new figures both in publishing and allied creative industries.
