Jane Friedman: “Thoughtful, intelligent ‘literary’ work is doing quite well digitally if you step away from book-length or novel publishing and into journalism-driven or nonfiction-driven publishing…I wish there were a community aspect to it (maybe there will be), which the literary world needs. Where’s the literary person’s version of Wattpad? Does that even make sense? I’m not sure. Self-publishing is still verboten in literary land, and that’s half the problem here; a lot of the exciting stuff that’s happening is quite entrepreneurial, and literary authors have long resisted that approach, and rightfully so to some extent.”
Publishing Perspectives will live-stream Friday’s 1;30 p.m. ET Town Hall Debate from Grub Street’s The Muse and the Marketplace: What Every Literary Writer Needs To Know About the Digital Disruption.
