Description

Have you heard these myths about the impact of AI on the publishing industry? Myth #1: AI will replace authors, leaving them without a job. Myth #2: AI-generated content will flood the market, making it difficult for publishers to stand out. Myth #3: AI will eliminate the need for human creativity in writing. Join us in this episode as we debunk these myths and get to the truth about the impact of AI on authors and publishers. Our guest, Jane Friedman, an expert in the publishing industry, will share insights on how AI is shaping the future of publishing and how authors and publishers can adapt to thrive in this changing landscape.

Jane Friedman is not just an industry commentator but an astute observer whose analysis helps authors, publishers, and enthusiasts stay ahead of the curve. She writes 'The Hotsheet,' the bi-weekly newsletter that has become the go-to resource for those interested in books and publishing. Jane operates where foresight meets expertise, constantly monitoring changes while sharing her thoughts and advice for her audience.

  • Discover how to navigate the uncharted waters of the ever-evolving publishing industry.
  • Evaluate the role of artificial intelligence in reshaping the realm of authors and publishers.
  • Analyze the gravity of copyright issues and authenticity discords surrounding works generated by AI.

We also talk with Jane about the recent collapse of Scribe Media; resignations in the upper echelons of Canadian book retailing icon Indigo; and whether we're seeing more globalization or more localization in publishing.
