Tuesday, 6th December 2016 at 6pm - 8:30pm

Location: LAB 027 Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge CB1 1PT (easiest access off Broad Street)

This event is in the past.

'It’s a sad fact, but if you read just one [professional] book a year during the course of your career you’ll be among the top 5 per cent of most learned people in the industry … Actually, let me rephrase that. It’s a fantastic fact … it makes it so easy for your to steal an advantage over the not-so-enthusiastic amateurs who are your competitors' ─ Steve Harrison, How to Do Better Creative Work (Pearson, 2009).

What, then, should we read about publishing? Anthony Haynes will introduce his top tips and invite further suggestions from the audience.

Anthony is director of Frontinus Ltd, which publishes books under two imprints, and Consulting Editor for OUP. He also writes books – mostly about writing books – for Bloomsbury and CUP.

In usual CAMPUS style, there will be decent wines in proper glasses (life is too short for plastic cups), plus non-alcohlic drinks and nibbles. For this we charge £6 to those in paid work and nothing to students.

Before you come along please have a think about (and bring?) books – about any aspect of the publishing industry – that have inspired or motivated you …
