A Brief History of Publishing (And Publishing Workshop Info)

So, I found the cool infographic below in my travels as I searched for information on the history of literary agents. Because, of course that is what one searches for in one’s travels.  No, really, it is because I’m co-leading a workshop on publishing this weekend and since Thanksgiving was so time consuming, I’ve not told you much about it.

If you’re in Portland and you want to learn more about publishing, here are the details:

If you’re interested, contact me, okay? It’s going to be a lot of fun.

And here’s that infographic.  It’s a little dated, but interesting nonetheless:

Elephant’s menu looks good. I understand this is their sack lunch, which looks good. It’s been a looooong time since I visited a true deli. I’m a regular at Subway, but you know . . . . Nashville probably has a first class deli. Nice history of publishing. I hope you have a great turnout.


Would you like to have dinner or lunch with my wife and I? We could drive up. I love Nashville.


Love seeing the long time ago history. Cave paintings were a part of my art history education, and it’s so interesting to me how communication, story telling, and legacies were carried thru in this manner. I guess the iPad is the modern day stone cave wall.
