Alexandra Pringle, Group Editor-in-Chief of Bloomsbury and Patricia Borlenghi, of Patrician Press, take you inside the world of publishing. How do publishers choose their authors? What happens next? Is the publishing world glamorous or just hard work? This promises to be a fascinating event for both writers and readers.
Bloomsbury Publishing is a leading independent publishing house established in 1986. Its adult fiction list includes Esther Freud, John Irving and Donna Tartt. Their children’s list includes J.K.Rowling and Benjamin Zephaniah. Their academic division includes Methuen Drama and The Arden Shakespeare.
The Patrician Press, set up in 2012, promotes high-quality fiction and poetry by authors not acknowledged by commercial, mainstream publishers and agents. The Press is small, independent and courageous. It is philanthropic rather than profit-driven. It wishes to uphold and maintain the quality of contemporary literature in today’s challenging, competitive and ever-changing technological world. Patrician Press welcomes works from writers with disabilities or from ethnic-minority backgrounds. The Press wishes to nurture and guide writers, helping them on their way up the publishing ladder. The list includes novels, short stories, poetry and non-fiction.
