“Publishing: The Literary Landscape”

This class will involve a discussion of the larger literary publishing landscape, using the history of Burrow Press (an Orlando-based publisher established in 2010) to contextualize the importance of community-based initiatives and small, independent publishers within the larger publishing ecosystem. There will be ample time for a general Q&A open to any questions related to publishing.
