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 at 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!
