Writer and broadcaster Laura Jane Williams and RED journalist Natasha Lunn will join the second Conduit event, celebrating women in publishing.
The collective which offers free quarterly events was unveiled in March by staff at A M Heath, based on the idea of agent Zoe King. Places for the inaugural event were snapped up within hours, before a larger venue was found and almost 200 women attended on 24th April, hearing insights about women in the publishing industry from creator and host of "The Guilty Feminist" podcast Deborah Frances-White.
The summer session will take place on 24th June at 6.30pm at the h club in Covent Garden.
Williams has written in various publications including the Guardian, Buzzfeed, RED, the Telegraph and Stylist and has written two non-fiction books and her debut novel, Our Stop (HarperCollins) will be published this summer. She will be interviewed on topics such as "work life balance and about striving to meet your personal and professional goals" by Lunn, founder of 'Conversations with Love', whose newsletter talks about love in all its forms. Afterwards there will be a social event with the chance to meet new people or catch up with colleagues and friends.
“As those of you who attended the sell-out event with Deborah Frances-White in April will know, Conduit is a new group for women working in publishing who want to connect,” A M Heath assistant Florence Rees wrote in a email circulated to previous participants. “It was formed in the spirit of generating space for conversations. We want it to be easier for women working in publishing to talk to one another, whether that is straightforwardly social, or to discuss industry experiences, concerns, ambitions and new ideas.”
The event will be sponsored by the h Club. For more information or to book a free ticket, click here.
