This weekend The Literary Platform will be involved in an event called ‘Publishing Indie in the Digital Market Place’ being held as part of the Independent Alliance weekender at Foyles bookshop, Charing Cross Road (London).
The Independent Alliance is a network of independent UK publishers, joined together to ensure their diverse output reaches the widest audience possible. This weekend they’ll be bringing to Foyles a vast array of authors for two full days of literary events – including discussions on counterculture and how to write non-fiction, and speed-dating Indie-style.
The ‘Publishing Indie in a Digital Marketplace’ will start at 11am on Saturday 11th September and the panel includes Hannah Griffiths (Faber), Dan Franklin (Canongate) and Jonathan Ruppin from Foyles.
We’ll be discussing what it means to be an independent publisher or independent retailer in the digital age.
