March’s BookBrunch interviews!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve given you an update on the BookBrunch interviews I’ve been writing, so here’s a little list of March’s chats – and keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got a real winner coming up this week!Bookbrunch Interview Header-01

BookBrunch interviews Claire Malcolm from New Writing North

The role of authors in the industry has, perhaps, never been as fraught as it currently is, with YouTube stars and chefs dominating the bestseller lists and traditional writers increasingly turning to alternative forms of publishing to get their voices heard. I met with Claire Malcolm, Chief Executive at New Writing North, to discuss the importance of helping – and paying – authors.

Poetry, and the rest is noise: An interview with Jenny Swann from Candlestick Press

Being original can be somewhat of a risk in the post-recession publishing environment, but when the leap is taken, it can really pay off. Poetry publisher Candlestick Press, run by founder Jenny Swann and her business partner Di Slaney, is a shining example of this. I met with Swann to discuss the idea behind the press, sales success, and her innate passion for the genre.

Book design as a conversation: An interview with Lawrence Morton

“Often people get quite frightened when designers start getting playful in books,” grins designer Lawrence Morton, as he spreads out his favourites of the books he’s worked on. They sprawl across a large table, otherwise empty except for a moka coffee pot on a portable electric stove. The walls are lined with the kind of pine Ikea shelves popular in artists’ studios, a large Mac humming away amongst rows of glossy coffee table and cookery books. It’s definitely a designer’s office…

NB: These three interviews are all for paying subscribers to BookBrunch only.
