The Spare Room Project has recently launched, which is designed as a practical initiative aimed at helping regional diversity in publishing, and led by James Spackman of Pursuit Agency. The Project will match students from outside publishing with a publishing professional in the capital (London), offering them accommodation for a week in July or August. The aspirant publishers are expected to organise their own work experience, but will benefit from a room to stay in, and a chance to meet others doing the same thing. For more information see The PA website.
If you feel this is something you or your colleagues could help with, and could offer a room please contact email@example.com. The hashtag to discuss this project on twitter is #SpareRoomProject.
