Emerging Story Platforms for Authors

The market for stories is much bigger than books as we view them in their traditional sense. Just as ebooks disrupted the print market, the storytelling industry has new disruptors. This session will introduce some of the newer formats that authors are using to distribute their work (e.g, chat, interactive and gamified stories) and will analyze the trajectories of several platforms that have been around for a few years or more (e.g., Radish, Tap by Wattpad, Hooked, Choice of Games, etc.). This session will be part commentary and emerging industry analysis, part overview of the submission process, and intel culled from interviewing current authors.
