The Publishing Point

The point where publishing meets the future...

Sara Nelson - Publishing Point Perspectives (interviewed by Susan Danziger) - November 2009

In a conversation with Susan Danziger, Sara Nelson, Books Director of O, the Oprah Magazine and former editor-in-chief of Publishers Weekly, talks about her role as curator/editor in the new publishing landscape; the future being with small “mom and pop” publishers; job insecurity in the current publishing environment; and projects that most business-to-business magazines will move exclusively on-line within the next year or so. She also states that publishers are “dead wrong” if they think that ebooks will cannibalize their print sales.
