Publishing Department at the Bologna Book Fair

A small group of MA Publishing students plus two publishing staff visited the April 2005 Bologna Book Fair. A great time was had by all, the sun shone, we had some fantastic meals and some serious publishing activities took place too. We had meetings with Kate Harris from OUP; Catherine Clarke, literary agent with Felicity Bryan Agencey Julia Eccleshare, Guardian children's editor; Eirin Hagen from Cappelens the Norwegian Publisher, and Fiona Kenshole, film scout for a Hollywood animation production company. Many excellent contacts were also made - and a job offer for one of our students! We also had the opportunity to meet with students and staff from the Bologna University MA Publishing programme, and with the course director, Umberto Eco. We are hoping that some of these students will visit Oxford Brookes later this summer. see more images here
