At the core of the publishing business is the job of choosing what to publish and it is a complex process. If you're an editor in the early stages of your career, with responsibility for acquisitions and list-building in trade publishing, this unique programme will give you the best possible foundation.
This intensive four-day residential event looks to combine the creative with the entrepreneurial, and balance intuition with methodology. It will be hugely rewarding for those who take part in terms of the knowledge and skills gained, and the networking and relationship-building opportunities.
The programme covers all the essential skill areas that a successful list-builder needs to acquire. It also explores the critical relationships with internal and external partners with whom effective working relationships are essential.
