New Writing North: Publishing with Faber & Faber

Closed for 2019. Reopening 2020.

Are you aged 16–25 and interested in finding out more about the world of publishing?

New Writing North have teamed up with Faber & Faber to offer a group of young people from the North East the opportunity to see behind the scenes at one of the UK’s most prestigious publishing houses.

Participants will be given an exclusive copy of one of Faber’s soon-to-be-released titles and travel to London where they will hear from Chief Exec Stephen Page and undergo workshops from various members of the Faber & Faber team to find out how the book came together.

This will be an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in working in publishing or having their work published. New Writing North are particularly interested in hearing from people who are under-represented in writing and publishing.

Food and travel by train from Newcastle to London will be provided.
