Panel: Industrial-strength Literature

The Anglophone literary field is unique in the hefty scaffolding that surrounds publication. From being workshopped in an MFA program through an agent’s approval followed by an editor’s detailed input, all the way to the marketing department’s ministrations, some great writing gets published with the help of a lot of infrastructure. How does the writing-to-publishing trajectory work in other literary cultures? What are the advantages, drawbacks, consequences? How do these differences shape the currents of the world’s literatures? Moderated by Nataša Durovicová.

Saturday, October 8, 4:00 p.m., Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, Social Hall.
