As well as launching our books in bookshops, we often sell Handheld Press books at book fairs, conventions, conferences and AGMs, depending on the subject. Kate also gives talks about publishing and design at libraries, and runs workshops on how publishing works for aspiring authors (and publishers).
If you’d like to book a Zoom talk (no fee), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you discovered the Handheld Book Club?
It’s our online monthly salon: have a look, and book your tickets here (many are free).
Weird book launch: Tuesday 27th October 2020
At 19.30 UK time / 13.30 EST on Tuesday 27th October we’ll be hosting a Zoom book launch for our two new Weird anthologies, British Weird, edited by James Machin, and Women’s Weird 2, edited by Melissa Edmundson. Kate Macdonald of Handheld Press will be moderating.
Please attend! Email us at email@example.com with this information:
- your name
- your Zoom name (ie the one that appears on your Zoom screen, so we know who you are in the waiting room)
We’ll send the Zoom link to the launch on Sunday 25th October, and the launch will go live at 19.10 on the 27th. It should last for about an hour.
Everyone attending the launch will receive the special discount code for both books bought via our website.
Creative Feminisms Festival: January 2021
Kate will be in conversation with British Library Publishing on 13th January at the online Creative Feminisms Festival, 17-18h UK time.
We are continually in talks to create more book stalls, events and talks: do revisit this page to see what has been arranged, or sign up to our monthly Newsletter.
Due to the public health emergency most of our planned outings and events have been cancelled. Events coming up in 2021 are still in planning, but we know we’ll be at EasterCon, FantasyCon and BristolCon.
