Forthcoming meetings

Monday 10 September

For our meeting on Monday 10 September, (12.30 at the University Women’s Club) Phoebe Morgan will speak on life as a commissioning editor and give tips for anyone trying to get published.

Phoebe works as a commissioning editor at Avon HarperCollins, working across a busy list of commercial crime, thriller, saga and women's fiction. She enjoys launching debut authors and working with a range of Sunday Times and Kindle bestsellers. She also works closely with the cover designers, briefing the jackets to make sure they stand out on the shelves, and with the sales, publicity and marketing teams to create coherent campaigns. Prior to this she worked as an editor on non-fiction at Octopus Books, editing cookery, popular culture and reference titles.

She is also a writer herself and her first book, The Doll House was published recently. She writes psychological thrillers as they are her favourite genre to read. Her blog about the publishing and writing process can be found at Phoebe Morgan. This will be an informative and useful session: please let Beverly know if you would like her to reserve you a place.

NB: The charges remain as follows: everyone who has paid the annual membership of £55 pays £15 for each meeting, everyone else pays £25. If you would like to attend any of these meetings please email Beverly Davies to let her know.
