Audience and Readership: A panel with James Davies, Jim Hinks, Alec Newman and Togara Muzanenhamo
Who do publishers sell their work to? How do they know where the work of their authors ends up? How do writers go about presenting and promoting their work? Are there any demographics of potential readers who are unaware of a work or publisher’s existence? How do both publishers and poets maintain their readership and also encourage the growth of audience? In this lively panel discussion James Davies, poet and editor of if p then q, poses these questions and more to Jim Hinks editor of Comma Press, Alec Newman editor of Knives Forks and Spoons and Carcanet poet Togara Muzanenhamo.
