Friends Meeting House
York Street - Bath, Somerset BA1 1NG

Agent and Bath Children’s Literature Festival creator, Gill McLay will explain the intricacies of the publishing team and the different roles and objectives of the personnel in each. Publishing a book can feel solitary as an author or illustrator but understanding the team at the publishing house can help you to understand that you and your book are part of a bigger team and as its creator you are, not only, essential but can genuinely make all the difference.

At the event, Gill will give every participant the chance to skip the slush pile and submit their manuscript directly to her for a limited time. You might need a password in the subject of your email. So get polishing your manuscripts and make sure you come to the talk.

Non-members welcome!

After the talk, we will have the room for another couple of hours for a bit social mingling or pre-arranged critique groups. There also might be an opportunity to take part in a free presentation/workshop “How to make your own dummy book”. If you are interested please contact¬† Rita Lazaro at
