Margaret Atwood - The Publishing Pie

Many of you may have caught this on Rachelle Gardner's link, but I'm posting it for anyone who didn't find it or take the time:

Margaret Atwood is one of the publishing world's most enduring and respected authors.  During this conference speech she outlines the evolution of publishing, what we're doing the same and what we're doing different from fifty years ago - and where it might be taking us.

Watch and learn my aspiring authorial friends.  This is one of the most educational (and amusing) twenty minutes you'll ever dedicate to your burgeoning career.


  1. Ooh, thanks for the repost. I didn't get a chance to watch it when Rachelle posted it, will bookmark this and watch on the weekend :)



  2. I saw this on Rachelle's blog... it's so good. This woman KNOWS what she's talking about, doesn't she?

  3. Yes, exactly! There's a certain credibility that comes with having been in publishing for forty-odd years. She's a writing Yoda :)

  4. Something's blocking the video at the moment, but I'm sure she has amazing advice. I'll be back! :) New follower and fellow crusader here just (finally) making the rounds. Happy Thursday!
