Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join the Herefordshire Group on Tuesday 12 April from 2pm and hear from literary agent Camilla Shestopal and publisher Mike Linane. They will discuss the role of literary agents, the author/publisher/agent relationship, and the publication process through to marketing. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions.

Camilla Shestopal has been involved in publishing all her career, having worked at Penguin Random House, Chorion and Entertainment Rights (now Classic Media). In 2009 she moved to Peters, Fraser & Dunlop to become an agent and director over estates, representing clients such as George Simenon, Margery Allingham, Eric Ambler, CS Forester and many others. She has recently started Shesto Literary. Camilla was shortlisted for the British Book Awards Literary Agent of the Year in 2017, and is a trustee of the Essex Book Festival.

Mike Linane runs Williams and Whiting, which is an innovative, independent publishing house with the desire to not only publish books by new authors but to also help readers rediscover books that have gone out of print by making them available again in bright, easy to read, new editions. He is currently publishing the 60 or so original scripts of Francis Durbridge, best known for his Paul Temple radio serials.
