Atwood Tate: Blogmas 2016

Blogmas

We don’t know about you but Christmas is our favourite time of year! It is a time of family, friends, food as well as giving, sharing and fun! Hence this year Atwood Tate are taking part in Blogmas!

For anyone unaware of ‘Blogmas’, it is the term created by bloggers who attempt to blog daily over the month of December! Now we’re not sure how feasible blogging everyday would be for a working business such as ourselves…so we are taking part in our own form of Blogmas!

From the 1st of December until the 23rd, when our offices close shop for the holidays, we will be doing lots of Christmassy, fun things tying back to Publishing!

We will be running weekly competitions, quizzes, Q&As and more!

To see a full run-down of what we have planned see our Events Calendar! Or follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for daily graphics and tweets about our exciting events!

The Prize includes: a free CV/Cover letter review, bookmarks, vouchers, gift sets and more!

We’ll be revealing more about the prizes as we go along! All you have to do to enter is complete the tasks in the Rafflecopter box below! Two are compulsory and the rest are voluntary – but the more you do the more likely you are to win the prize!

We’ll be running our Blogmas across all social media platforms, and each event will be individual to that platform so make sure you follow them all so you don’t miss out!

Break into Publishing: Networking

Breaking into publishing: Networking

Common Symptom #2: Networking

Speak Softly and Carry a Big Book

You’re at a fancy venue. You have a glass of wine in your hand, maybe some food or maybe only the fond memory of food at this point, you’ve been standing here so long, watching, waiting, trying to find an in, an opening, a shot – that’s right, you’re networking.

Networking in publishing can be a fairly daunting prospect, especially for young graduates. It’s difficult to be assertive when you don’t claim to be an expert on anything this early in your career. And if you’re quiet and retiring, you’re not exactly going to make a lasting impression. But it’s a worthwhile endeavour so it’s important to try.

As we’ve previously covered in our work experience blog, publishing is a saturated market so you will always have to run a little faster, climb a little higher, work just that little bit harder, to make any headway. It can be bitter pill to swallow but it comes back to how badly you want it.

The important thing to remember is that, believe it or not, networking in the publishing world can actually be quite fun! It’s a chance to mingle with like-minded people who know your struggle and are usually quite helpful in offering advice or tips. A memorable conversation can go a long way. What starts as an observation about the venue or your journey there can lead to suggestions and introductions you could not have come across in any online search you might try. Take a business card, take two! Take as many as you can until you have a winning hand. And if you have your own cards, even better.

Events

There are great events happening all the time, from Christmas parties to pub quizzes, hosted by a variety of societies and institutes, all of them masters at bringing people together for a night of fun and games while also creating an ideal space for networking.

And don’t worry, if networking doesn’t come naturally to you, remember that, like everything it gets easier the more you do it. You don’t need to own the room, you can be yourself and let your passion show through. Think of talking points in advance to help break the ice, familiarise yourself with publishers and who their authors are so you can show you know their company and what they’re about.

Next step? Sign up to newsletters, check out websites like the SYP, Bookseller, BookMachine, then pencil in some dates – who knows, it’s possible you could bump into one of our staff making the rounds and we might be just the person who can help you!

If you have a question in need of answering, about networking or other work experience related questions, let us know on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn!
