Haringey Unchained meet Frances Lincoln Publishing
Frances Lincoln Publishing, an imprint of the Quarto Group, welcomed members of Haringey Unchained to their offices in Angel on Monday 16th October.
The students got to sit in the boardroom whilst a host of publishing professionals, including the Publisher and Senior Commissioning Editor, took the students through their stories. We learned about how people move successfully from university into a career in publishing, and all the different departments that go into a successful publishing company. For the second half of the experience, students learned the process of publishing Frances Lincoln’s exciting title: Modern Women – 52 Pioneers.
The students got to copy-edit a draft of the text, and do a bit of picture research. Students who participated in the event left the office of Quarto feeling excited and keen to consider a career in publishing. We had a great time, and thank the professionals at Frances Lincoln Publishing, for welcoming us into their office and making us feel so at home!
