Children’s Publicity Workshop
The workshop will run from 10am – 12pm and will concentrate specifically on events for children’s authors. Speakers include Julia Eccleshare from Hay Festival, Holly Davies from Waterstones and Paul Black from Andersen Press as well as committee members and experienced publicists Hannah Love from Scholastic and Eve Wersocki-Morris from Simon & Schuster. After hearing from all of our inspiring speakers there will be a chance to workshop event ideas with your peers.
It’s a bumper two hours but well-worth it for all children’s book publicists, whatever level of experience you have. It’s a great chance to network too!
The workshop is free but spaces are limited so sign up is a must. Send an email to book your place as soon as possible to Hannah Love – HLove@scholastic.co.uk
