Year of Stories x Paisley Book Festival: Shaping Scotland’s Stories: From Inspiration to Publication
February 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Your book has been signed up with a publisher: What happens now? What is the work that goes into making a story the best it can be? In this event, we’ll bring together a duo of authors, both of whom had their debuts later in life, alongside their editors, to discuss the life experience and influences behind the work, as well as the working relationship between author and editor, the vital collaboration that brings books to their fantastic final form. Join Anne Pia, author of creative memoir Language of my Choosing and poetry collection Transitory, and her editor Jennie Renton; alongside Mick Kitson, winner of the Saltire First Book Award for his debut novel Sal, whose latest novel is Featherweight, with his editor Jo Dingley.
Curated by Publishing Scotland as part of their Year of Scotland’s Stories events strand, these events look to spotlight the brilliant talent thriving within Scotland’s publishing scene and invite readers to learn more about the inner workings of the book industry.
