Should Publishers Write Books?

Jul 18, 2021

Episode 132 of bookcareers.com Live

In recent years there has been an increasing number of publishing employees become published authors.
Careers guidance has traditionally been ‘if you want to work in book publishing, don’t say you have written a book!’.
Should this guidance now be updated? What should you do if you’ve written a book but see your career working for book publishers in a creative role?

In this episode of bookcareers Live we talk to Phoebe Morgan,¬†Editorial Director of HarperCollins, a published author, and most recently The Bookseller’s Shooting Star of 2021. We talk about career guidance if you are an author. So if you’ve written a book and want to know how to approach a job application or what to put on your CV, do have a listen.

You can talk about any of the issues mentioned in this podcast on our bookcareers.com/live platform.
