In keeping with the Portico Library’s historic advocacy for literary access and diversity, their June schedule finishes with a pair of events aimed at dissecting the modern publishing landscape: ‘Pathways into Publishing’ enlightens visitors on the industry’s processes, challenges and means of entry, while ‘Into the Wilds’ spotlights an emerging Northern house which amplifies marginalised voices.


Pathways into Publishing | Sat 25 Jun | 11am-4.30pm | Free | More info

Taking place across nearly a full day on Saturday (25 Jun), ‘Pathways to Publishing’ calls on prospective artists, booksellers, publishes and writers of all disciplines to stop by for a relaxed yet illuminating set of talks from professionals across the publishing spectrum. Northern-based experts provide information and inspiration on everything including art, book design, writing, editing and pitching in a ‘modern market-style atmosphere’ beneath the Portico dome.

On Tuesday (28 Jun), the Portico welcomes Bradford-based publishing newcomers Fox and Windmill for an evening of storytelling from Into the Wilds, a new anthology of poetry and short stories from British South Asian writers.
