Our Lower Sixth students were fortunate enough to have a talk from one of our OC’s, Patrick Janson-Smith (OC 1967), the former publisher of Transworld and HarperCollins.
Having fond memories of his days at Cokethorpe, his time since leaving has been nothing short of outstanding. From his early days on Fleet Street to having a keen eye for spotting talented writers, his passion for books really captivated his audience. The changing publishing landscape was highlighted during the talk which stimulated interesting questions and answers from our Sixth Form.
We look forward to welcoming Patrick back in the Michaelmas Term for further reflection and inspiration.
