#CMPNY Version 1.0, Presented by General Assembly

    Even thought I'm not a writer, it's really exciting to be present to the paradigm shift in the literary community.

    good presentations by presenters, who are all offering interesting new ways to think about publishing or developeing writers, using tech. Also met a few people I need to know. Helped by understanding of how publishing and digital technology are coming together. I'll be at the next event for sure.
