KWL – Bonus Episode: The Future of Publishing with the Kobo Writing Life Team

Bonus Episode: The Future of Publishing with the Kobo Writing Life Team

Our international KWL team members were in town earlier this month, so we all crowded into our small (and very warm) podcast room to discuss the future of publishing, where we think indie publishing is heading, and our current reality television obsessions.

As 2020 is a leap year and contains an extra day, we figured why not record an extra podcast! Our international KWL team members were in town earlier this month, so we all crowded into our very small (and very warm) podcast room to discuss the future of publishing, where we think indie publishing is heading, and our current reality television obsessions.

KWL Team Members featured on this podcast include:
Tara Cremin, Senior Manager of Author Engagement (Toronto)
Camille Mofidi, KWL European Manager (Paris)
Nick Coveney, Public Relations and Content Lead UK/AU/NZ (London)
Joni Di Placido, Author Engagement Specialist (Toronto)
Laura Granger, Author Engagement Specialist (Toronto)
Jade Baudain, Catalogue Specialist (Paris)
Stephanie McGrath, Publisher Operations Specialist (Toronto)

We discuss:

  • Where we think publishing, both indie and traditional, is heading in the next five to ten years
  • The growing popularity of audiobooks (did you know you can publish your own audiobook with KWL?)
  • The importance of remembering that the publishing market is a global one
  • The future of storytelling
  • The Real Housewives of New York, Naked Attraction, dead bodies on Mount Everest and so much more!

Some of what the KWL Team has been loving lately:

The Witcher
His Dark Materials
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
