Eve Bridburg: “I don’t see online communities growing up around literary authors and books in quite the same way I see it happening for genre fiction and fan fiction. Where is the larger discovery platform for literary fiction? Will publishers keep publishing it if there aren’t readers? Where is the curation going to come from? Who will care if the audience isn’t large enough to excite big players? Who will care? The writers have to care and they have to be bold and experiment and band together to make the case” for literary fiction in the digital era.

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.
