Wildlife Publishing: An Insider's View

A chance to meet two of the most influential wildlife publishers in the world who will make individual presentations followed by a panel discussion and an audience Q&A.


Wildlife publishing has many genres from art books, nature writing to field guides and family monographs. Wildlife publishing is constantly evolving to keep up with changing consumer demands, new discoveries in science and improvements in photography. What books sell? How do publishers find their photographers and writers? How should you pitch an idea? Why is wildlife publishing in the print media proving so resilient? This event is a chance to have your questions answered and
gain an insight into some of the stories behind the books. A chance to meet two of the most influential wildlife publishers in the world who will make individual presentations followed by a panel discussion and an audience Q&A.
