Another great way to meet book business people is by joining societies and other associations. In the UK there is the brilliant Society of Authors, which champions authors, although there’s quite a steep annual fee. The benefits are The Society makes available free brochures on specific author-related information to members, as well as reading through contracts and answers technical questions. It’s likely that such a society would be able to help make introductions to agents and so forth. There’s also (in the UK) The Royal Society of Literature, which is extremely affordable to join, and is a great forum at which to meet writers, publishers and specialists in the book business. There are similar societies in the US and across the world.
