You will take part in a series of interactive simulations, seminars, case studies and Q&A sessions with a team of editors, designers, publicists and sales representatives from some of the top publishing houses in the industry.
On the programme, you will gain knowledge and experience of the editorial process, including negotiating manuscripts and building authentic relationships with authors.
