Imagine your place on the bookshelf of the future

We believe that publishing should be open and accessible to all people, from all backgrounds, from all communities. But sometimes knowing where to begin, or even how to start, can be intimidating.

Each month this year The Future Bookshelf will provide you with a new infographic featuring tips, tricks and ideas from authors, editors, agents and experts to help you write your novel. Our aim is to demystify publishing and guide you through the process of writing, editing, submitting and publishing, so you know what to expect and how to succeed.
