About the event
To celebrate 5 years of organising publishing events, BookMachine are organising a big birthday bash on Thursday 24th September 2015.
So much has changed since we kicked off in 2010. This event will explore what is next for the industry – and give you ideas to help you navigate the next chapter. Gone are the days of being a ‘conference zombie’ – talks will be short and everyone encouraged to participate!
If you want to be at the forefront of what’s happening:
- Join us in person in London
- Enter the prize draw to win books from talented and emerging authors
- Join the online debate around the future of publishing #BookMachine
