Meet Rebecca Swift of The Literacy Consultancy: Talk & Luncheon


By Carol Dyer

Those who attended the Rebecca Swift event at the Hong Kong Literary Festival on Saturday 7 November enjoyed learning about The Literary Consultancy, which she co-founded in London, and her experiences in the publishing industry over the years. She commented particularly on the effect on the industry of the rise of the internet and e-books Rebecca Swift is the daughter of Margaret Drabble and an author in her own right. She is a very engaging and informative speaker.

Sixteen members and guests continued on to the FCC for lunch, which provided a wonderful opportunity catch up with each other and ask lots more questions of Becky.

We plan to make Literary Festival lunches or suppers a feature of the WiPS calendar in the future.
