  • The Teahouse Theatre Cafe 139 Vauxhall Walk London, England, SE11 5HL United Kingdom (map)

Guest editor and publisher: Lennie Goodings

Why does a writer need an editor? How is the publisher's role different? In this salon we’ll be discussing what happens to your book, from submission through to the final manuscript ready for publication, with Virago Press Chair, Lennie Goodings.  Her authors include Margaret Atwood, Sarah Waters, Sarah Dunant, Sandi Toksvig, and Linda Grant, among many others. Lennie is herself now writing a book, The Idealistic Publisher, while still acquiring and editing books for Virago. This evening’s salon should answer all your questions about the myths and mysteries of being edited and published.
