TOC 2011: Margaret Atwood

The O'Reilly Tools of Change Conference wrapped up recently. A highlight was Margaret Atwood's talk "The Publishing Pie: An Author's View." (Where's my cheese sammie?)

Want more? As they do every year, most of the speakers were recorded and are available on their O'Reilly YouTube channel. Awesome!

Cool talk! I wish she'd talked a little more about how much the load on authors vs publishers has changed over the years, although I'll bet that she's to the point now where that isn't so much an issue for her.

I agree, although several TOC speakers did touch on that. Especially how promotion used to be the onus of the publisher and has almost completely shifted to the job of the author... along with writing. Ugg!
