For those of you who couldn’t make it, the first-ever Pubcamp@SXSW Interactive was a huge success! With talks and panels from a wide array of publishing industry professionals, it was an informative and inspiring event. And you can still catch the whole thing- online! Look for a sneak peek of our own WLT Agents Conference Keynote Speaker Jane Friedman. And check out talks from Guy Kawasaki, Scott Dadich, Rick Levine, Sarah Wendell, and more!

While you’re at it, take a look at these fantastic photos of the event by our very own WLT staffer, Amy Rose Capetta!

The Writers’ League is pleased to team up with Kirkus Reviews to present a brand-new official SxSW Interactive event: PubCamp@SXSW. We’re inviting authors, typographers, cover designers, printers, technologists, retailers, literary agents, publishers and geeks to consider how technology can transform and perhaps improve on what Johannes Gutenberg created more than 600 years ago. Whether you’re brand new to the world of digital publishing or you’ve already a dabbled in it, come to PubCamp to get your questions answered.
The first hour will be informal discussions with digital publishing experts; this is your chance to pick their brains! Then we’ll hear from Guy Kawasaki, Scott Dadich of Wired, Rick Levine of Conde Nast, and Sara Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.
The event is free to non badge-holders, but be sure to register in advance (seating is limited)! For more information, click here. To register, click here.
