Given the rapid changes in the literary publishing industry, in 2012 Betsy Warland decided to find a different way of reaching readers. This meant going on(the)line to create Oscar's Salon, a digital interactive space for writers and readers. In this workshop, Warland will focus on creating publishing and readership environments that are lively and gratifying, and will reflect on the process of creating the template for the online interactive salon (which it turned out to be the venue for the publishing of Oscar of Between: A Memoir of Identity and Ideas in 2016). The new pathways, from writing to creating an online site to connecting with a larger readership to having that work published in book format provided Warland with a renewed sense of adventure. "We’re in a time of having to think laterally, inventively. If creating more alternative appeals to you," she says, "let's talk."
