Talk by Rui Zink - Updated


We are pleased to welcome back Rui Zink, who is a Portuguese author, academic, and the founder of an editing and publishing course in Lisbon. He has kindly agreed to deliver a talk containing an overview of publishing, but with reference to his own experiences. The talk will take place on Tuesday, 6 February 2018.

He has suggested that he would prefer answering questions from students during the talk, instead of delivering a monologue. Therefore, students are encouraged to ask questions. He has said that he will focus on publishing in Portuguese, so this would be a good opportunity for students to ask questions about publishing in a language other than English.
