Panel 510:
Writers and the Brave New World of Publishing

Publishing is changing at the speed of light. Are paper books a thing of the past? Is self-publishing the way to go? Is it even possible to crack the Big Five? No wonder writers are anxious and confused! Here to illuminate the latest trends and tech in publishing are Jane Friedman, high-profile publishing blogger, teacher, and guru to both new and traditional paths;  Merilyn Simonds, author of seventeen books including her most recent, Gutenberg’s Fingerprint: Paper, Pixels & the Lasting Impression of Books, and Gerard Helferich, who spent twenty-five years as an editor and publisher at various New York houses before becoming a writer himself, having just published his fifth nonfiction book.
