The point where publishing meets the future...
In one corner of the ring will be publishing's old guard, the traditional publishers; in the other corner, the young upstarts and outsiders.
The proposition being debated is: “In the fight for survival, outsiders and start-ups are taking on today’s heavyweight publishers and will ultimately deliver a knock-out punch."
Be there to vote and influence the outcome of the debate.
Starring as debaters will be: Evan Schnittman, Managing Director Group Sales and Marketing, Print and Digital, Bloomsbury Publishing Plc; Fionnuala Duggan, Managing Director, International, CourseSmart; Bob Young, CEO & Founder, Lulu; and Allen Lau, CEO & Co-Founder, WattPad.
Referrees will be: Michael Healy, Executive Director (Author and Publisher Relations) at Copyright Clearance Center; and Susan Danziger, Founder and CEO, DailyLit and Organizer of The Publishing Point.
Many thanks to sponsors of this debate: Bowker, Identifier Services and the Copyright Clearance Center.
You can sign up for The Great Debate here on Meetup.
I look forward to seeing you there!
Organizer, The Publishing Point
