BookMachine, in partnership with the students of Kingston University’s MA Publishing course and Kingston University Press, are delighted to announce the launch of:
The second compilation of the best blogs from the BookMachine archive, focusing on consumer relationships, marketing and new publishing models, written by leading practitioners from across the publishing industry.
When is it?
Wednesday 29th April from 18:30 onwards.
What will happen?
Three of the contributors to Snapshots II – Tom Chalmers (Managing Director of IPR License), Toby Hopkins (Senior Account Manager at Getty Images) and Laura Palmer (Editorial Director and co-founder of Head of Zeus) will be discussing the theme of collaboration – how working together means working at our best. Hailing from diverse professional backgrounds, they are sure to offer three different and eye-opening perspectives on what is the lifeblood of the publishing industry. When the talks are over, you will have the chance to buy Snapshots II – a tremendous feat of collaboration if ever there was one - as well as expand and revitalise your own network of like-minded colleagues over drinks. After all, a good wine begs to be shared – just like a good idea!
