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).
Here’s our current list of events. Do come and see us! And if you’d like to book a talk (no fee), email us at enquiries at handheldpress.co.uk.
We are continually in talks to create more book stalls, events and talks in 2020 and beyond: do revisit this page to see what has been arranged, or sign up to our monthly Newsletter. Due to the public health emergency many of our planned outings and events have been cancelled: these are the events that are still happening, as far as we know.
no longer on 21 May but to be rescheduled: Kate will be moderating a discussion panel at the Bath Festival on forgotten stories, with biographer and critic Sarah LeFanu, the book critic and Second Shelf Quarterly managing editor Lucy Scholes and cultural historian Louisa Adjoa Parker.
1-4 July: Handheld will be running a SFF Writing Retreat with Una McCormack and Helen Marshall, in Malvern, Worcestershire.
25-27 September: We’ll be selling our books at FantasyCon in London.
31 October: We will be at BristolCon in central Bristol.
