F+W Media, publisher of the Writer's Digest, is sponsoring a free Webinar on the Borders bankruptcy and how it will affect writers. Called, “The Borders Dilemma: What the New World Order of Bookselling Means for Writers,” the free, 60-minute webinar will be held at 1 p.m., Friday February 25.
Presenters include Jon Ackerman, sales director of F+W Media’s Adams Media subsidiary, and Phil Sexton, publisher and community leader of Writer's Digest, and former v-p sales at F+W Media. The webinar is free but is limited to the first 1,000 attendees. The presentation will be archived and remaining attendees will get access to it. Presenters will offer information on the impact of the Borders bankruptcy on the book industry in general as as on the writing community in particular and they will take questions from listeners following their presentation.
