Creative Writing lecturers Susan Greenberg and Louise Tondeur are running a workshop at this year’s London Book Fair, looking at new trends in publishing at UK universities.

Along with colleagues from UCL, they will explore the ways in which universities have become a site for innovation in publishing practice, and a research partner for the industry. Examples of practice include specialist new print-on-demand presses, online magazines and journals, digital scholarly editions and archives, and experimentation in the classroom.

The workshop, supported by the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE), will take place on Wednesday 17 April from 10.00 to 11.00.

It is relevant to a wide range of people including practitioners in HE university publishing, academic journal publishers, independent presses and literary trade publishers.

Susan Greenberg, a member of the NAWE Higher Education sub-committee, has over 25 years of experience in journalism and publishing. Her teaching and research focuses on the writing of literary nonfiction, and on the publishing process.

Dr Louise Tondeur is a novelist and academic as well as editor-in-chief of Fincham Press, a planned new imprint at the University of Roehampton.  Her research interests include writing the novel and short fiction, queer and feminist theory, and cultural interpretations of the body.

The London Book Fair, attended by around 25,000 visitors each year, is one of the most important events for the publishing industry.
