For me, the Future of Publishing Think Tank was an action tank. Writers at Work convened a smart group of local publishers, booksellers, writers and literary advocates, and together we sought to find a way forward for literature in the internet age. It was 2007 and the industry was being turned upside down by blogs and online shopping. Twitter and Facebook were still in their infancy, and the first smart phone hadn’t even been released. Encouraged by the Think Tank to experiment, I developed a series of workshops about social media and podcasting that I taught at Writers at Work. Later I modified them and took them on the road for other audiences. I was also inspired to create GuerrillaReads, the online video literary magazine that is still going strong, having featured more than a hundred writers in its nine-year history. Tuesday nights in One Page At a Time is where I honed my craft. The Future of Publishing Think Tank is where I carved a larger place for myself in the vibrant world of literary Los Angeles.
