So, this post is going to be short and sweet as we are all RUNNING AROUND THE OFFICE setting up for our TWO events of the day.
Aren’t we social! (/crazy?)
Starting at 1pm, we have our very first Literary Lunch, for reviewers and press, who’ll get to meet some of our authors, all of our editors and eat yummy food from Benugo (Nom.)
Look how pretty the boardroom is looking!
That is about to kick off as I post this…
And this evening, from 6.30pm we are delighted to host our very first trade panel event – Women in Digital Publishing.
We are so excited about this, there’s such a varied crowd of women (and men!) from all over publishing, coming to Clerkenwell to talk all things digital. The timing couldn’t be more perfect with this fantastic article by Sam Missingham posted on Monday, and the brilliant Women in Publishing event on digital last week.
The consensus seems to be that us girls need to speak up more, and learn to shout about our successes, but we will have a full report of the event later on this week. We’re also filming it so for anyone that can’t be there, or didn’t manage to get a ticket in time, you can catch up online.
And obviously as it’s a DIGITAL event there will be a hashtag where you can live tweet, or live follow the event via twitter tonight.
We wanted something simple, that will continue the conversation and tell you what we’re talking about. So there it is.
We CAN’T WAIT to meet everyone today. Fear not, we have plenty of wine…
