Whether you are new to writing or whether you are looking for a fresh take on the submissions process, In Conversation with… offers tailored advice from industry experts to strengthen your chances of finding the right home for your work.


"In Conversation With…Small Press Publishers edited by Isabelle Kenyon and Dr Charley Barnes is one of those rare and remarkable publications that writers always wish existed. Now, thanks to the dedicated work of Fly on the Wall Press and Sabotage Reviews, it delightfully does. This book contains a wealth of practical tips for submitting your writing, interspersed with personal interviews that ask the questions you always wanted to ask. There’s invaluable inside information for young writers, as well as an invigorating reminder of good and bad habits for more seasoned submitters.


Like all good creative writing, it weaves together its insights into a tight bundle, always with its reader firmly in mind. Its experienced editors provide detailed commentary on all aspects of the submission process and beyond and it showcases feature publications that exemplify the work of some of the most exciting and adventurous small press publishers operating in the UK today.


Fly on the Wall Press and Sabotage Reviews have created a resource that will no doubt be checked and double checked by writers of all shapes and sizes in that nerve inducing run up to submission. Readers will find compassionate and generous advice that seeks to cherish and to celebrate the writing community. If there’s two things you can do that will help you get your work out into the world, the first is to get writing, the second is to get yourself a copy of In Conversation With…Small Press Publishers!"  -Dr. Jack McGowan, Head of Department of English, Media & Culture, University of Worcester
