How does a publishing house work? Ever wondered how a publisher decides whether to commission a work? Interested in getting feedback on your submission?
On Friday 16 March, Penguin Random House will be in residence at the New South Wales Writers’ Centre.
Meet publishers from Penguin Random House as they take you through how a book gets published from the submissions process through to acquisition, editorial, and contracts. In the afternoon there will be breakout groups for genre-specific Q&A sessions and an opportunity to meet one on one with a publisher to get feedback on your submission.
Submissions will be read by Penguin Random House publishers and editors prior to the seminar. In one-on-one 15 minute meetings you will be given feedback on your submission, including advice on refining your submission, whether it is in the correct genre, appropriate length, etc.
Work submitted can include genre and literary fiction, non-fiction, young adult fiction, middle grade, and children’s books.
