Celebrating the launch of the new batch of Pathways Into Children’s Publishing - Pop Up

So much talent under one roof! We had a phenomenal night as all our present and alumni Pathways Into Children’s Publishing mentees came together with our partners, mentors, tutors, board members and supporters across the industry and beyond.


The panel discussion, chaired by Sharmilla Beezmohun, included our alumni mentees and mentors including Elorine Grant (Art Director at HarperCollins Publishers Children’s Department), Rachel Denwood (Managing Director at Simon & Schuster) and Jane Buckley (Art Director at Simon & Schuster). Missed the panel discussion? Watch the panel talk about what makes Pathways Into Children’s Publishing a unique programme, the career of our alumni since the programme finished and so much more.

Our Executive & Creative Director, Dylan Calder, started the day off with a speech that set out the future goals of Pop Up Projects and our ambition to take our legacy forward.
