AWM Online will be holding their next live forum on Tuesday 15 May at 12pm: Independent Publishers – the Brave New World with special guest Gavin Grant. Gavin is the director of US based Small Beer Press and will talk about the dynamics of US and international publication.
Small Beer Press was founded in 2000 to ‘publish good writing’. With a mix of a small press zine, several chapbooks, short fiction collections and full length novels per year, Small Beer has carved a solid niche in the US independent publishing world.
The discussion will cover topics such as what drives a smaller publisher, their devotion to and development of their authors and the difference between the US and Australian markets as it pertains to advances, print runs and distributions. For more information on Small Beer Press please see www.lcrw.net.
Please join us at midday on the 15th for what promises to be an enlightening discussion.
