The Friday Project specialises in sourcing and publishing talent from the web.
1/Please give us a brief description of your job?
I sit in a room and publish things.
2/How did The Friday Project begin?
Before my time. Two cool people thought it might be neat to turn web content into books.
3/What are you working on at the moment?
About to announce a publishing industry first. Very exciting and top secret.
4/What inspires you in a writer?
I look for storytellers rather than show offs.
5/What could writers do to win you over?
Include cake with submissions.
6/What top tip would you give to an unpublished writer?
Choose a book by your favourite writer and then type out a few chapters. You’ll learn lots.
7/What writer would you like to have round for tea?
Julianne Moore. Has she written anything? I don’t care.
8/How do you see the publishing industry changing over the next five years?
Almost beyond recognition. But no jet packs.
9/What’s the future of The Friday Project?
Watch this space.
10/What one book would you have liked to have published?
Pinball 1973 by Haruki Murakami. But there’s still time.
