Harper's Bazaar creates hub to celebrate women in the literary world

Harper's Bazaar, the Hearst Magazines title, is giving readers the chance to meet acclaimed female authors, publishers and agents.

The "Bazaar literary salon" invites acclaimed authors, such as Ali Smith and Jessie Burton, to give audiences a "unique insight into the publishing industry" through a series of talks and panel discussions.

Confirmed speakers also include Bloomsbury group editor-in-chief Alexandra Pringle and literary agent Karolina Sitton.

The activation is part of Hearst UK’s Big Book Initiative, which aims to recognise the best new fiction and non-fiction from up-and-coming authors.

The event takes place on 20 May at the Ned in London.
