Mid list authors

Monday 15th June 2009

Went to Bristol on Friday. We drove there and back in a day, setting off at 6 in the morning. I went to attend a Lapidus training day. Lapidus is an organisation that uses writing as a therapy. Did you know that child abuse victims can write down their experinces before they can talk about them? I attended some facinating – one on working within prisons – I’d love to do that. I met some one that worked for a small, though very well known publishers and she told me that an author that we both knew and who had once been a tutor of mine was being signed up by them; apparently a lot of what are termed mid list authors are being let go by the bigger publishers. Well more fool them is all I can say
