Inspired by Gill, anticipating Simon

On Tuesday 3rd November Literary Agent (and co Artistic Director of the Bath Kids’ Lit Festival) Gill McClay came to BGS to speak to the Literary Events team about the world of publishing. We enjoyed tea, and she asked everyone individually about their personal goals. All of us are very interested in publishing, and are either considering jobs or work experience in the field, so we bombarded her with eager questions. Degree courses, foreign deals, different sectors of a publishing company – we all found something inspiring to latch onto. I’m sure there will be great news from the follow-ups of this session. We could have gone on talking about our plans for hours, and we thank her for being so helpful in the time we had!

We’re now eagerly preparing for Simon Barnes’s event tomorrow, on Wednesday 11th November. His book Ten Million Aliens is absolutely filled with oddities of science: memorable titbits about amazing animal species you’ll never have heard of. If you’re interested in the natural world, come and join us!
