Paid Conferences 

Every year we host two paid conferences that deliver quality content and unrivalled networking opportunities for visitors of LBF.

Previous themes and topics have included: the essentials of rights selling, contracts and rights deals checklists, how to get published, and how to pitch to agents.

Tickets to our conferences also include access to all three days of LBF.

We will open our call for papers for LBF25 seminar sessions in Autumn 2024.

The Writers' Summit

The Writers’ Summit conference is designed to help get your writing noticed by agents, publishers and readers. With expert tips, industry advice and author inspiration, whether you’re starting to write, are self-published or have your eye on a book deal, this one-day conference gives you inside direction to set you up for success. The day will include talks with authors about their journey to publication.

Research & Scholarly Publishing Forum

The Research and Scholarly Publishing Forum explores key themes in business and academic publishing, such as the influence of AI on scientific authorship and research, creating an open future, how associations are shaping the future of the academic sector, and strategies and trends in academic publishing.
