Publishing Next travels to Kochi this year

13 July 2016

Established in 2011, Publishing Next, the industry conference on issues of concern to the book publishing industry, has become an integral part of Goa’s cultural landscape.


This is about the change this year, as the event has been scheduled to be held in Kochi, Kerala on 15-17 September 2016.

The seventh edition of the event, which maintains a broad perspective and looks out for directions in the future of book publishing, and the way those books are ultimately ‘consumed’ by the reader, will be spread over three days.

The first day will consist of masterclasses, while the workshops, panel discussions and networking sessions will be held on days two and three.

“In addition, the Publishing Next Industry Awards will be presented during the networking dinner on day two. Sessions have been planned keeping in mind the concerns of publishers, editors, translators and others within the publishing industry,” said Leonard J Fernandes, co-founder and trustee, Publishing Next.
