#LWCLIVE Bill Illis Literary Agent event 15 October 2013

London Writer's Club emailed me with details of a literary event coming up on 15 October:

London Writers' Club 2013
Book now for event with literary agent, Ben Illis
We are delighted to announce our October #LWCLIVE speaker, the brilliant YA and children's literary agent, Ben Illis. This has become a real growth area for publishing so even if its not something you are writing at the moment, it will be an interesting event to attend.
We caught up with Ben to ask him some quick fire questions and answers. He told us: 
 I have been lucky enough to work in many guises in the publishing industry over the past almost two decades. As part of the branch management team of Books Etc, I bought kids and YA books in stores across the whole of London. I was a co-founder of Old Street Publishing. I have been both sales director and marketing director of small publishers. I have acquired, commissioned and edited;  done picture research and ghost-written, all ahead of turning my hand to agenting. I am a published writer in my own right and have had the experience of working with agents both good and bad from the other (your) side of the fence.
