Episode 39 of bookcareers.com Live

Are you constantly working long and excessive hours? Is your workload completely unmanageable? Do you find yourself always having to cover for colleagues who are leaving and not yet replaced?
Then the chances are you are a chronic overworker, and fall under the umbrella of ‘Overworkers Anonymous’.

This week’s episode of bookcareers live focuses on the discussions that arose from a talk to the Oxford Branch of the NUJ about the overwork culture in publishing.  You’ll hear some points that will resonate as well as a few strategies to break a culture that is endemic within the book industry.
