Publishing as a career? Listen to the debate….

publishingGraduates from all PPLS disciplines, not just LEL grads with the more obvious connection, have made a career in the publishing industry.

If this is an area that interests you, then the fascinating debate on the future of the book, which featured on BBC R4 Front Row programme from the Hay on Wye Book Festival last week is essential listening – and great material for publishing-interview conversations!

Philip Jones editor of the trade journal The Bookseller, Crystal Mahey-Morgan Digital Sales and Marketing Director at Zed Books, Alexandra Pringle, the group editor in chief of Bloomsbury and Ali Sparks author of 41 books for children discuss this topic with Samira Ahmed.
