Now Available: Author University Videos on Demand

by The Author Newsletter Team |November, 2023

In October, the Author Portal team brought you two new Author University sessions. The recordings are now available on demand on the Author Portal for your viewing pleasure.

These panels featured a selection of breakout authors and publishing experts discussing some of the issues that impact authors the most:

The Current Book Banning Landscape: Banned authors Ibram X. Kendi, Stacey Lee, and David Levithan discuss the current state of book bans and how to fight back with Skip Dye, SVP Library Sales and Digital Strategy for Penguin Random House.

The Changing World of Social MediaAuthors Jeffrey Marsh and Tara Schuster chat about finding your footing on social media, what newsletter platforms they prefer, and how to set boundaries in light of rapid changes in the social media landscape.

If you couldn’t attend or want to review the content again, we have good news: All the panels are now available to view on the Author Portal! Simply hover over the Resources tab and click on Author University, and all the videos will appear.

Thank you so much to all who attended the sessions. We’ll be back with more programming in 2024, so stay tuned for more details about the next Author University in the coming months!
