Lucy Brown, commissioning editor in Creative Writing at Bloomsbury Academic (UK) will be running a couple of commissioning days for the creative writing list on Monday 24thand Tuesday 25th April. The idea is for people to book in a short, 30-minute session to discuss any ideas around potential projects or proposals they have been thinking about. Lucy hopes this opportunity will make publishing with Bloomsbury’s Creative Writing area feel more accessible through an informal chat.
Writers can informally discuss projects at the early stages, see if an idea has legs or be ready with a proposal to submit. Lucy is most interested in creative writing books for students to use on courses, and research books for scholars and practitioners.
