Book Clubs from Year 5 to Year 12 are invited to a special afternoon tea with Davina Bell. She will share the magic of the publishing industry – how Word documents become books, visions become covers, and dreams become objects. Using real-life examples, we’ll explore the editorial and design processes, and discuss the challenges and triumphs of creating literature. Who are the players, and how are decisions made? With real-life examples, this is an engaging behind-the-scenes look at the publishing industry from my unique dual perspective of author and editor.
