Avoiding volcanic ash, cancelled flights and over-crowded trains, a private bus ensured MSc Publishing students and staff arrived safely at this major publishing event.
With over 23,000 industry professionals attending the 3-day event, the London Book Fair represents ‘the largest gathering of international literary agents, publishers and publishing suppliers under one roof’.
This year MSc Publishing students were provided with free travel and accommodation, allowing them to take full advantage of the London Book Fair and all the learning – and networking! – opportunities it provided.
Thanks to the Scottish Centre for the Book (SCOB), we also had a stand within Publishing Scotland where students could rest between seminars. Obviously, we took the opportunity to host a party while we were there!
