Hybrid publishing (not to be confused with being a “hybrid author”) is a growing segment of the publishing industry, with more and more publishers entering into this space or wanting to understand what it’s all about. In this longer program, Brooke Warner, publisher of the hybrid press, She Writes Press, will detail what qualifies presses to be hybrid, what the emerging hybrid press best practices are, and where we’re going from here as the middle ground of publishing opens up to encompass ever more creative and inclusive business models. We will do a deep dive into the various hybrid business models that exist, including contracts, royalties, distribution, and more. We’ll talk about how to work with authors, and how to be a successful hybrid author. This session will include nuts and bolts about money, how to make it work, and the value, always, of professional publishing standards.
The speaker will dive deeper into the four takeaways from the morning session.
