Scott Pack - Tips from a Publisher, at Waterstones Swansea

We're very excited to be welcoming industry veteran (and Waterstones alumni) Scott Pack to Waterstones Swansea!

Scott will be talking about, and giving advice on, all things publishing, from writing and editing, to submitting and publishing a book.

Scott Pack is now in his third decade working in the book world. During that time he has been head of buying for Waterstones, worked for publishers big and small – including a lengthy spell at HarperCollins – and taught numerous workshops on classes on all aspects of writing. These days he splits his time between writing his own books, editing other people's, teaching the editors of tomorrow as part of the Oxford Brookes University MA in Publishing, and he is one of the specialist subject question setters for BBC's Mastermind. His books include Tips from a Publisher, a handbook for writers, and Literary Cats, a history of felines in literature.

'A guide to writing, editing, submitting and publishing - as the book's subtitle says - from an industry perspective. A friendly, useful, realistic, up-to-date and detailed guide to what to expect from and with agents and publishers (as well as with non-traditional ways into publication), and how to approach them professionally. A great addition to any shelf of writery books. Recommended' - 255 Book Review
