How formal are the events? They sound like formal lectures, a bit like being back at college or Uni.
We have knowledgeable speakers so the events are informative but also fairly informal. Speakers treat their topic thoroughly with visual aids where appropriate. We frequently invite two or three speakers with different views on a topic or different areas of experience. And one event in the year – in the summer – brings an author and their editor together in a conversation about the creative relationship. We have had authors from many parts of the publishing industry, and these events feel more like a session at a literary festival.
