The Print Journal in a Digital Age

Gold Salon 3, JW Marriott Los Angeles, 1st Floor

(Michael Dumanis,  John Freeman,  Brigid Hughes,  Uzoamaka Maduka,  Wayne Miller) Five editors of print literary journals — Bennington Review, Freeman's, A Public Space, The American Reader, Copper Nickel — founded in the past ten years discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by print publishing in an era when internet publishing may seem a less risky choice due to its low cost and universal distribution. Why make a commitment to print in the 21st century? Has the role of the magazine changed? Who still reads print journals these days, and why? How can print literary culture be reinvigorated? Might this be a favorable time for a print renaissance?
