Hal at the Pages Festival + Conference

  • I will be speaking at a panel discussion about The Future of Self-publishing being held as part of the new Pages Festival + Conference in Toronto. It should be a pretty interesting discussion as I am likely to have a very different perspective on self publishing than anyone at Kobo or Wattpad.

  • with: Hal Niedzviecki, Nathan Maharaj, Caitlin O’Hara, Ashleigh Gardner, Deborah Barnett, Bob Kasher and moderator Robert K. Logan

  • Friday March 14. 3:30pm. At the Tranzac Club, Toronto

  • Even description: Self-publishing has become a global phenomenon. Last year over 350,000 titles were self-published in the US alone. Self-publishing has become a key way for global self-expression in many countries without a massive publishing infrastructure or suffering under onerous regimes of censorship and state control. Our panel looks at these and other areas of interest and concern in this fast growing, fast changing environment. How will it affect literary publishing? What kind of controls can or should be put on it? Will it continue to grow? Panelists include representatives from key platforms like Kobo and WattPad as well as successful self-published authors.
