With the advent of digital publishing, opportunities are arising for new and unusual formats, from 150-character short stories to not-quite-book-length articles. Simultaneously, writers and publishers are exploring alternative formats in print. Brooklyn-based Armchair/Shotgun, a literary magazine available only on paper moderates this discussion on the changing shape of fiction and journalism from the writer’s conception of a piece to publication, distribution, and marketing. With Bomb’s Paul Morris, Electric Literature’s Halimah Marcus, Abe's Penny editor Tess Knoebel, Atavist co-founder Evan Ratliff, and literary agent Erin Harris. An audience question and answer session will follow the panel discussion.
