London Book Fair: Insight Seminar – The ‘real’ new publishing

Activity: OtherPublic engagement, outreach and knowledge exchange - Public Lecture/debate/seminar

Caroline Harris - Panel participant

Traditional publishing houses focus on adapting print to the mass-market, instant-access ebook and wonder what to do next in this disintermediated digital age.

This session will explore an alternative view of the new publishing. A new generation of publishers display passion and purpose, placing editorial, innovation and creativity at the heart of what they do, to create highly desirable publication brands.

Here, digital is invisible – an entirely natural part of the new content-making ecosystem. Ideas, stories, images, and information are shared seamlessly and thoughtfully across multiple platforms (and revenue streams) from beautifully designed hardback print books to video; social media to events. Hear inspiring stories from publishing’s early 21st-century pioneers and consider an alternative future of publishing.

Caroline Harris of book creator Harris + Wilson joins Vince Medeiros (publisher of Huck, Little White Lies) and Miranda West (Do Book Co) and chair Katharine Reeve (Subject Leader, Publishing, Bath Spa University) in an Insights Seminar panel discussion.
