Margaret Atwood on "The Publishing Pie"
If you have some laundry to fold, or shoes to shine, or possibly some pencils to sharpen… whatever busy work you need to do this weekend, set your laptop next to you and play this video. It’s totally worth it.
At the O’Reilly Tools of Change conference, amidst techies and marketing people and CEOs, Margaret Atwood does the unthinkable – or at least the unusual: She speaks on behalf of writers, asking the publishing industry, please don’t eliminate your primary source.
She said so many things I resonated with, but I think one of my favorites was:
“No author, no book.”
This is a 30 minute video – her talk is 20 minutes, then there’s Q&A. Watch it when you have a chance, then come back and tell us what you resonated with!
Have a good weekend!
