Reading and Writing in Bits: The Futurism Panel

A session at Publishing App Expo

Thursday 8th December, 2011

1:30pm to 2:30pm (EST)

Everyone knows that digital is coming, but what does that mean for the building-blocks of storytelling? Does a 21st Century writer need to be equal parts filmmaker, marketer and entrepreneur? Will the activity of 'reading' involve soundtracks, short films and twitter? And will anyone pay for any of this stuff, anyways? This panel will, somewhat whimsically, try to imagine a future where the majority of publishing occurs digitally, and what that means for the 100,000-word narrative and the people who make a living because of it.
