Benjamin Samuel: “I think we may start seeing more unconventional formats, literature in spaces that are mostly unexplored. Digital publishing has more potential than just an animated page-turn on your iPhone. In other words, digital publishing is much more than just ebooks. As writers experiment more with apps and other platforms (Shelley Jackson’s Instagram story, “Snow,” made me grateful for all the snowstorms this winter), they encourage readers to accept new modes of media consumption. The way we read is changing, and writers will have more and more opportunities for expression.” 

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.
