TLC Director Aki Schilz Named in the #FutureBook40

April 06, 2018 | Other News

The Literary Consultancy is delighted to announce that our Director Aki Schilz has been named as one of the #FutureBook40, the first list of its kind acknowledging the work of publishing innovators working in the UK today. We are thrilled that Aki joins a list of illustrious peers all making interesting and important contributions to discussion around the future of literature, writing, reading, and storytelling practices across publishing, tech, and beyond. About Aki’s nomination, the FutureBook40 team said:

“After stepping into founder Becky Swift’s shoes last year, Schilz has proved herself a worthy successor and tireless champion for writers, literature and literary values—from empowering Open Access events to her #BookJobTransparency campaign.”

#FutureBook40 is sponsored by Kortext, and the brainchild of FutureBook associate editor Molly Flatt.

Our congratulations to the 40 listed innovators, with a special nod to part-time TLC Marketing and Development Officer Crystal Mahey-Morgan for her contributions through her transmedia storytelling brand, OWNIT.
