Today we’re incredibly pleased to announce a new event that we’ll be holding this year: An Introduction to Children’s Publishing.
This will be a free, ticketed event at the Nosy Crow offices on the evening of Wednesday 10th July, designed for people who are interested in working in children’s publishing, as a way of learning more about the industry – no prior knowledge or experience is necessary.
The evening will begin with an introduction and welcome from our Managing Director, Kate Wilson, and then in small groups you’ll have a chance to meet someone from each of our Editorial, Marketing, Production, Publicity, Rights, and Sales teams, who’ll each give a brief overview of what their job involves and answer any questions you might have about working in children’s publishing and the opportunities available. There’s also be a chance to chat with each other, and staff at Nosy Crow, at the end of the evening, and refreshments will be provided.
Where is it?
This event will take place at the Nosy Crow offices in London, near London Bridge station (you can find us on a map here). We are aware that cost of travel can be an issue for those outside London, and we’re partnering with The Book Trade Charity who may be able to offer financial assistance for those who would need it for travel to the event. The office is wheelchair accessible.
How to Apply?
We’re offering 24 places for the evening; applications are open to anyone who is 18+ and will be judged blind. No prior experience of children’s publishing is expected, and we would particularly like to encourage anyone from a BAME or under-represented background to apply.
To apply for a place, all we would like is an answer to the question below in no more than 150 words.
Applications will close on the 17th June at midnight, and we’ll be notifying those who’ve been successful by the 19th June.
If you have any questions, please email [email protected] with An Introduction to Children’s Publishing in the subject heading.
