Publishers’ Walk & Talk: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

2 October, 2022 @ 10:45 am - 3:00 pm BST

Walk and Talk WEBSITE

Walk & Talk with London-based publishing people!

We are once again bringing publishing people together on Sunday 2nd October for a friendly and informal industry Walk & Talk event! We’ll be meeting up in East London for some great industry chat whilst strolling across the marshes, along the canal and ending up in Stratford’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park*.


Everyone is welcome to join us as we get some exercise whilst chatting with others who work across the publishing landscape, or who are hoping to break into it. If you are craving connection and would like to meet new people this autumn, we would love to see you there!


Please sign up above to let us know you’ll be coming along.


The walk will be led by Justyna Pezik, an experienced walker and hiker. Justyna has worked in publishing for 22 years, both in editorial and rights. In her spare time she leads community walks for a local charity, so she knows her stuff!


*Sorry to anyone located in the rest of the UK and wider world and who cannot make this event. If you would like to host your own Walk & Talk in your local area, please get in touch with us, and we can help to facilitate this for you!
