Publishing veteran Debra Englander gives an overview of the self-publishing process, followed by a conversation with literary agent Ted Weinstein—who represents Keith Devlin, NPR's Math Guy and author of numerous traditionally published books as well as the self-published title Leonardo and Steve: The Young Genius Who Beat Apple to Market by 800 Years—and publicist Amy Packard about the opportunities available to independent authors as well as the challenges they face.
Melissa Faliveno, associate editor of Poets & Writers Magazine, talks with the editors of five independent presses about the kind of work they look to publish, the relationships they cultivate with their authors, and the balance between publishing traditional work and developing new and innovative ideas for both print and digital literature. Panelists include Abigail Beckel of Rose Metal Press, Robert Giron of Gival Press, Andy Hunter of Black Balloon Publishing, Kimberly Steele of Augury Books, and Kathleen Wheaton of Washington Writers' Publishing House.
