#BigBookCrit Top Tips

Last night I was a critter at the DMA / IDMGraeme Robertson Trust Big Book Crit in London. There are a few more happening in Manchester, Norwich, Edinburgh and Bristol TOMORROW. So if you’re reading this and haven’t registered, head here.

It’s Nice That : Here 2014

Everyone knows, we at the YCC love a good event and this one was up in the very top drawer. We’d like to thank It’s Nice That for having us over and letting us in the doors of the only ‘symposium’ we’ve ever been in!
