Publishing was once considered a staid and traditional media business, but is now at the epicentre of the digital revolution. Every aspect of “traditional” publishing is under-going a paradigm shift in the digital age, but the technology changes, how much about telling stories should stay the same?

This session will explore what the leading edge publishers are looking for; what excites them and what doesn’t. The panel will also ask big questions about creativity and storytelling, exploring the potential and pitfalls of the latest digital paths to readers while celebrating the original (and best!) children’s media: the book.
