Trade Commissioning and List Management

STOP PRESS Creative Skillset support enables a 50% discount on the standard course fee

Launching November 23 - 26 

This brand-new course, with its stellar faculty of tutors, is the definitive course for commissioning and acquisition editors from consumer book publishing who require the skills necessary to build a profitable publishing list.

Creative Skillset
The project to develop and launch this course has been partly supported by HM Government with Employer Ownership funding. This funding enables the PTC to offer places on the inaugural course at a 50% discount off the full course fee at £997.50 (plus vat).

If you're an editor in the early stages of your career, with responsibility for acquisitions and list-building in trade publishing, this unique programme will give you the best possible foundation.
This intensive four-day residential event looks to combine the creative with the entrepreneurial, and balance intuition with methodology. It will be hugely rewarding for those who take part in terms of the knowledge and skills gained, and the networking and relationship-building opportunities.

The programme covers all the essential skill areas that a successful list-builder needs to acquire. It also explores the critical relationships with internal and external partners with whom effective working relationships are essential.
