Event Details

Four founders of the UK’s most influential contemporary independent publishers discuss how UK publishing is changing. In 2018, a significant number of major UK literary awards were won by books published by small independent publishers, and writers are increasingly turning to boutique presses for editorial care and publication. Why are smaller publishing houses having such big impact on literary culture, what can we do to make sure they survive and what lies ahead for readers who crave a more diverse and interesting publishing landscape? Featuring Elly Millar from Galley Beggar, Valerie Brandes from Jacaranda, Kit Caless from Influx Press and Crystal Mahey-Morgan of OwnIt!
