Hot off the press

Editor James Read at The Emerging Writers' Festival 2017

Written a book that you are ready to share with the world? Or maybe you are looking to get a start as an editor? Join Pantera Press Editor James Read, along with other industry experts, as they share their invaluable insights on publishing and editing! 

This year James will be involved in three great events on Monday 19th June at the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne:

1pm - 2pm: Process of Publishing
A unique behind the scenes perspective of publishing – find out how the best in the business like to be approached by writers, how they find new talent and your best pathways to publication. How can you stand out in a crowded marketplace? What do these editors look for?

With: Marisa Pintado, Kate Stevens, James Read, chaired by Enza Gandolfo

4pm - 5pm: Pitch Time!
Put what you’ve learned into practice and deliver your 5 minute pitch to an industry professional! These publishers, editors and literary agents are always on the lookout for the new and exciting voices, so here’s your chance to show them yours.

With: Cate Blake (Penguin), Kate Stevens (Hachette), Grace Heifetz (Curtis Brown), James Read (Pantera Press), Barry Scott (Transit Lounge), Martin Hughes (Affirm Press)
6pm - 7pm: Industry Insiders Emerging Editors
To get started as an emerging writer is, in some ways, easy. You just … start writing. But how do you get your start as an editor? Can you just start editing? This Industry Insiders session will equip emerging editors with the skills to develop positive and productive relationships with writers. These editors discuss what it means to start careers on the other side of the page, how they got started, how they’re finding ways to grow, and maybe how you can begin, too.

With: Sian Vate, Jessica Wilkinson, James Read
You can book tickets here!

The 2017 Emerging Writers' Festival runs from June 14th-23rd.
