In this free WEBcast, Content Strategy 101 for Publishers and Authors, we’ll explore what content strategy means for publishers and authors when “the book” is only one of many potential vehicles to “publish” a story.
“Content” now means more than just the words and pictures that end up in a book, physical or digital. It can mean enhancements like audio and video; core and enriched metadata, like reviews, indexes and bibliographies; social reading and transmedia opportunities; and even user-created content like commentaries, fan fiction/art/videos, etc.
