The Future of Publishing - Oxford Literary Festival

Oxford Literary Festival

The familiar world of the book is facing some key challenges. These include the decline of bookselling on the high street, the growth in the sales of ebooks, and competition from other media. There is continued experimentation around the book in digital form, exploring non-linear narratives and the use of multimedia. Meanwhile, for authors there are many new routes available for finding a readership, including self-publishing or using crowdfunding to finance publication. Will traditional publishing survive in this environment? Why do authors still need publishers? Should readers have a greater say in what is published? Our expert panel of Nigel Newton, Anthony Cheetham, Tim Waterstone, and Richard Ovenden considers these and other questions.

The event is chaired by Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies.
