Digital First Publishing

Over the last couple of years, digital-first publishing has become one of the most buoyant and innovative sectors in the industry. But the digital-first approach, where the publisher’s primary platform is digital rather than print products, has also seen significant changes emerge in the model of contractual relationships between publishers and authors.

In this session, we will explore the many exciting opportunities that digital-first publishing represents, and what it all means and requires for writers, publishers and agents. We’ll focus on the key information you need in order to navigate the digital-first landscape.

With literary agent Jenny Brown, of Jenny Brown Associates, and Jess Whitlum-Cooper, Associate Publisher at Bookoutre, a division of Hachette UK, and a dynamic digital publisher of bestselling commercial fiction, and commercial non-fiction in its Thread Imprint.

Hosted by Peter Urpeth, XpoNorth Digital’s Specialist Advisor in Writing & Publishing
