Hello! I’m a 3rd year illustration student looking for a writer to collaborate with for my upcoming project. I’d like to collaborate with someone who has interest in mental health issues or have already written about mental health and is seeking an illustrator! My style is varied but mostly digital. If this interests you I can send my portfolio :)
I have been offered a 'buy back deal' by a publisher for a non fiction cookery book- I have to buy 2000 books at a 50% discount and they will pay for all origination and production costs, photographer, designer, copy editor, printing. I get an advance on royalties in 4 instalments of 10K. I believe that for the price point suggested for the book I will pay up front 26K which with the full advance would mean I had paid 16K to get the book published. Is this a bad idea? Am I better going down the route of assisted self publishing and how can I be sure to get a reputable organisation?

I run a small walking tour company and I have an idea for a non-fiction book about the city I operate the tours in. I have it roughly planned- the themes for each chapter etc. Before I start writing, I wanted to contact agents or publishers about the idea first to ask if they are interested before I started writing. Is it acceptable to do this or would they require the completed book before considering it? Many thanks.

I was wondering what sort of writing space my fellow writers have when they are creating their masterpieces.
I spent quite a few years working at a tiny desk in a corner of a very small kitchen but since getting my own apartment a couple of years ago I've set my spare bedroom up as a study. I took a photo a few days ago of the desk area where I write and just wondered if we all have pretty much the same set-up or if there are some radical alternatives out there i.e. floating trays for use in the bath or even anything weirder and more wonderful!
I recently watched a documentary about Dennis Wheatley and was quite surprised to hear that he wrote all of his manuscripts by hand using a pencil.
Being left-handed and finding the physical act of writing by hand quite taxing, I choose to do all my writing on my laptop using Scrivener and wondered how my fellow writers on this site create their work.
