BookMachine Unplugged 2018: Talking Production

21 February @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm GMT
LIBRARY, 112 St. Martin's Lane
London, WC2N 4BD United Kingdom

Book production in 2018 means being more flexible. You must adapt to shorter print runs and quickly move between printers. You have to take control of the creation and archive process in ways that are the same, but totally different. All the while, you must be responsible in your use of resources and labour, wherever in the world it is based.

Join us for a fascinating session where speakers will challenge the print production status quo from only a few years ago. Network with fellow publishing professionals and hear about modern – and smart – ways to make changes to how we can all produce books.

BookMachine Unplugged 2018: Talking Editorial

25 April @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm BST
LIBRARY, 112 St. Martin's Lane
London, WC2N 4BD United Kingdom

Publishing, we have a problem: despite years of well-meaning discussion, our industry is still failing to represent the diversity of society in our staff and the content we produce. So what can we do about this, as individuals? For those of us who don’t run our own publishing houses, it’s easy to feel powerless to make meaningful changes.

In this event, speakers from publishers large and small will give insights into their work to increase representation of BAME, working-class and LGBTQ+ voices. We’ll look at how editors can actively seek out a diverse range of voices to build a list, and we’ll also focus on ways of reaching out to potential staff members who might not automatically feel they ‘belong’ in the industry. Join us for an evening packed with real-life examples and practical tips, and get involved in building a publishing industry that’s fit for the society we live in.

BookMachine Unplugged 2018: Talking Design

20 June @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm BST
LIBRARY, 112 St. Martin's Lane
London, WC2N 4BD United Kingdom

The big visual trends within book design tend to come from outside of publishing and increasingly, it’s our use of technology that drives what’s hot and what’s not. How can you filter out the fads and focus on visuals your readers will love?

Incorporating trends into books can be challenging. What exactly is ‘flat’ design and how can you integrate it successfully into your products? How are social channels and our use of our camera phones impacting on the style and use of photography? And how do colour trends influence and impact our readers?

Join us for an inspiring evening of discussion and networking. Listen to design, image and colour specialists talk about how publishers can integrate the latest trends to capture readers and boost sales.
