The seminar listings on the London Book Fair website have greatly expanded since I last looked a few weeks ago, and as usual, it all looks great. I love the Author HQ area especially, because I aspire to become successful enough to appear on a panel or give a talk there myself one of these days. And to pick up useful hints and tips of course. But the other seinar streams are not to be missed either.
The must-visit sessions for me this year at the moment are as follows. I daresay some of them will clash, so I will need to make some tough choices. But hopefully this list will whet your appetite too.
11 go-to sessions:
- Editing Culture/ The Culture of Editing
- Taking the fear out of AI - ethics, machine versus human, and real-life applications
- Academic Research: How Free Should it Be?
- How I Write - David Baldacci
- Nielsen Book: Books & Consumers annual survey - understanding consumer book buying behaviour
- An Introduction to Kindle Direct Publishing: Finding Readers Through Marketing and Engagement
- Page Central: The future of Typesetting, leveraging the power of HTML and browser
- Key points to watch out for in contracts, and why (Society of Authors)
- Collaborative Digital Marketing
