Last week was the London Book Fair and it was an extremely successful and enjoyable week for all those that attended. A lot of deals were made, books were announced and on our stand we had a lot of conversations with job-seekers.
You can take a look at some of the stands at the fair and the events that took place in our YouTube video.
We thought we would share some of our favourite moments of the book fair this year as it was such a great week.
Alison thoroughly enjoyed meeting people at the Careers Clinic on Thursday. She hopes that it was as helpful as it was fun.
Karine was very pleased to see so many people taking part in our daily book-token competition, with many people coming up to the stand to say ‘Atwood Tate we’re hear you’re great!’ She also enjoyed the ALPSP event on Tuesday afternoon.
The stands at the fair this year were fantastic! Kellie was very impressed by the Usborne stand which was decorated like a tree-house – you can see it in our YouTube video. Ellie enjoyed wandering around the fair meeting all the different people, seeing the stands and the general going-ons of the event.
Helen enjoyed talking to people at the Faber stand. They were handing out milk bottle sweets to celebrate the announcement of a new book The Secret Life of Cows. They were ‘over the moo-oon’.
Not only were the stands well decorated but the general decoration of the fair was wonderful. There was a yellow brick road seating area to celebrate the news that Michael Morpurgo, the fair’s author of the day on Thursday, was writing a re-telling of the Wizard of Oz from Toto’s perspective. There was a also a seating area made of giant Stilettos and lips for seats, which was Christina’s favourite.
The seminars this year were fascinating. We attended numerous talks and learnt a great deal of things about the publishing industry. For more details on what we discovered at a seminar on the effects of Brexit on publishing see here.
Michael’s favourite part of the whole fair was the atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly, happy to talk and to take pictures.
Meeting people at the fair, both clients and job-seekers, was the definite highlight of ours at Atwood Tate. We had fun and we hope you did too.
On the 15th March a group of SYP (Society of Young Publishers) and the representatives of the Publishing Interns (@PubInterns) will be gathering at the Cumberland arms near the London Book Fair for a chat and a glass of wine.
This is the perfect place to network with your fellow interns, work experience publishing people and also others within the publishing field.
A free event which is guaranteed to be a great night it is worth attending. Some of our consultants may pop in for a chat as well.
Make sure you follow us on twitter, @AtwoodTate, to keep up to date with what is happening.

Alison and I had a good look around the BETT show last week – this is the main exhibition for all things in education and a great opportunity to find out the latest in education technology.
As ever, there was a mix of educational publishing companies (or information providers as some prefer to be known) and new technological innovations. It’s exciting to see so many people involved in the cutting edge of classroom activities and the Steam area was very lively (loved the pun on STEM)!
Some of our publishing clients were there including Hodder Education and Rising Stars, GL Education & GL Assessment, Oxford University Press, Macmillan Education to name a few. It’s always good to see the latest products in the flesh so to speak and meet some of the teams to hear about it in person.
Here are some useful links to keep up to speed:
And there’s a #Bettchat weekly on a Tuesday 4.30pm!
