Simon Groth: The role of Geography in publishing

If you missed our literary salon on Friday then you must watch this excellent and insightful talk by Simon Groth from if:books Australia, recorded especially for the salon. There seems to be lots of correlations between the Brisbane and East Midlands publishing industries!

Loughborough Literary Salon: Digital Survival, Friday 16th November 2012

Brush off your top hats, monocles, and bustles!

The Department of Information Science and the Department of English and Drama at Loughborough University, in association with The Institute for the Future of the Book and Writing East Midlands, cordially invite you to a delightful evening of literary discourse, debate, and performance at Loughborough Literary Salon: Digital Survival.

An accomplished array of guest speakers from around the country will discuss the issues that surround writing and publishing in the digital environment. Additionally some of the finest performance poets in the country will show you how they are adapting to the digital publishing environment.

Network, share, learn, and open the doors for collaboration over a glass (or more…) of wine. It would be lovely if you could join the conversation.
