We spoke to Gemma Seltzer, a London-based writer working live, online and in print. Gemma is the founder of the brilliant morning and online writing class Write and Shine. She opened our minds to the peaceful and sometimes surreal world that exists before the working day starts – a perfect time for unfettered creativity.
We spoke to Paul Sherreard, Programme Manager at Spread the Word and one of 2016’s Unsung Heroes of Publishing, about Spread the Word’s Flight 1000 programme, the importance of good partnerships and what you can do to further the reach of London’s cultural resources.
Yesterday marked the publication of Bob Marshall-Andrews’s CAMILLE and the Lost Diaries of Samuel Pepys.
So what. Another day, another book released into a world awash with new releases. Surely there are already too many choices to make?
An astonishing statistic this week: nearly one fifth of Londoners are registered as self-employed. Actually, looking at the publishing industry landscape, it’s not all that surprising. As businesses across a range of industries look to cut overheads, reducing the number of in-house staff and relying on outsourcing jobs to freelancers is an increasingly popular option.
