Tomorrow’s going to be very busy for us: we’re hosting our first conference, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Children’s Publishing (But Were Afraid to Ask) – a whole day of talks devoted to de-mystifying the industry. We’ve got some incredible speakers lined up from all sectors of publishing – agent Hilary Delamere, Waterstones children’s buyer Melissa Cox, social media expert Jon Reed, columnist Lucy Mangan, a number of our authors, and members of the Nosy Crow team.
And even if you can’t make it to the event itself (we’ve been sold out for some weeks), we’d love it if you take part online! You can follow all of the day’s action on Twitter with the #NCCONF hashtag – and you’ll even be able to ask questions of our panellists during some talks.
If you have a burning question for one of our editors or authors, you can put it to them on Twitter during our panel sessions and we’ll do our best to answer as many questions as possible!
At 10.45, Editorial Director Camilla Reid, Head of Picture Books Louise Bolongaro, and fiction editor Kirsty Stansfield will be answering questions about the editorial process on a panel chaired by Nosy Crow Managing Director Kate Wilson.
At 12.30, Nosy Crow debut authors Helen Peters, S. C. Ransom, and Paula Harrison will be taking part in a panel session about first-time publications.
And at 16.30, Kate and Tom Bonnick, Digital Project and Marketing Manager, will be talking about the future of reading and Nosy Crow’s innovative app programme.
You can read our full schedule for the day below (and download it, and our full list of speakers, as a PDF here).
The hashtag is #NCCONF – we hope you can join us!
