Publishing Talk relaunch

4

Just a quick announcement to let you know that there will be a bit of disruption to normal service for a few hours on Sunday. We’re finally ready to re-launch Publishing Talk! As well as a new look, we’re adding new features, more contributors, a better jobs section and a new events section – which will include details of our new tweetups, the first of which will be at the London Book Fair in April. There will also be further resources and a podcast to come later this year. Here’s a sneak peek at the new design:

Since Twitter is such an important part of the Publishing Talk community, we’re including not just our own tweets, but mentions of @publishingtalk on Twitter in a new ‘Chatter’ column on the site. According to the Twitter directory WeFollow, we are now the most influential of 1,600 Twitter accounts about publishing. Our latest job ads will appear more prominently on the home page, and this section will be revamped too.

We will also start charging for job ads from February – but your first ad will remain free (or your next ad if you’re an existing advertiser). Job ads will remain on the site for 30 days, and tweeted. With over 21,000 followers, we have the largest Twitter reach for publishing jobs on the Internet. You can manage them yourself by logging in, or simply email them to us at jobs@publishingtalk.eu. There will also be banner advertising opportunities on the new site.

Finally, you will also be able to announce your publishing events, conferences, workshops and tweetups on the site in our new events section – and this will be free to start with. Just email them to us at events@publishingtalk.eu.

I hope you find the new site a useful resource. Let us know your thoughts, and see you on the other side!

  1. …and we’re live! Please bear with us while we fix a few remaining glitches, but Publishing Talk is GO, and will have more features and resources for you during the year. Let us know what you think, and what you’d like to see on the site. Hope you enjoy it, and talk to you soon!

  2. I am a babe in the business and I am going to take another big step into this wide world called publishing with a book to rock the horror industry. I would love to know the best publishers to submit my “William” too.

    Thank you for the feature on twitter & for acknowledging my input; this matters.
