eBookNewser Live from AWP


eBookNewser is reporting this week from the Association of Writers and Writing Programs annual conference. It is, among other things, a kind of giant town hall meeting of most of America’s independent publishers. The biggest attraction of the conference–which is attended by creative writers, writing students and teachers, and publishers–is the book fair where publishers sell thousands and thousands of books. Of course, those are all print books.

But we’ll be talking to everyone we can–the folks from presses like Graywolf, Milkweed, and Coffeehouse, to see where they are in the digital book plans. As far as this blogger can see, eBooks represent huge opportunities for small publishers. We’ll let you know if they think so too.
