About me
Hi there. I've worked in publishing for the past seventeen years in a variety of marketing roles and I'm now Events Manager at Bloomsbury Publishing where I'm responsible for the Bloomsbury Institute, Bloomsbury’s public events series, amongst many other things. Beyond Bloomsbury, I'm the chair of the London Writers’ Café – the country’s biggest fiction writing group – where I and my co-organiser manage writing development and events for a community of 3,000+ fiction writers to realise their writing and publishing ambitions. As Chair of LWC since May 2010, I've hosted more than 300 events for fiction writers. From that experience, I now teach marketing and publishing courses at the City Literary Institute and I'm a qualified writing coach. Follow me @LisasShare on Twitter/Instagram
