#NapierBigRead book launch on 1 March

As you might have seen, the #NapierBigRead is well and truly underway and we are ramping up activity in the lead-up to our book launch on:
World Book Day – Thursday 1 March.

Copies of Detective McLevy’s Casebook will be available for all students and staff across the whole university!

More details can be found on our website: www.napierbigread.com, where you will see information on our recent activity, including an event at the National Records Office, a presence at the ALIEN conference, and even a mention on the BBC.
Our most recent endeavour, the #bookstohomeless initiative, is also proving to be a great success. See the video below for more details.
All books are going to the Edinburgh charity, www.streetreads.org.
Thanks to all of you who have donated your books!

We are also publishing some male writers this year, but we will tell you about them another day…

 

Projects & Placements, we have the skills you need!

We are now in the third week of the new trimester and things are moving fast!

We have submitted all our book title ideas and are keen to share them with you… soon!

We are also excited to be publishing a full-colour magazine! This will be the all-signing, all-dancing new incarnation of Publishers Inc. The article proposals are undergoing scrutiny as we write and we will be revealing all to you very soon!

But we don’t want to keep you waiting – if you have any relevant placement opportunities, please get in touch NOW.

We are an industry-accredited programme, and we can help you!
