LWC talks to Scott Pack of The Friday Project

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6/What top tip would you give to an unpublished writer?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.
