Welcome to BAE’s website
BAE is a community for agents and editors of African descent working in UK book publishing. We are also running a mentoring programme for Black people interested in finding out more about the book world. This is a chance to discuss all things publishing: from how to apply for a publishing job, to what it means to be an agent or editor, and how books are made.
If either of these two things is of interest, keep reading!
