XXIst Mainzer Kolloquium: lyrik.buch.markt. 29 January 2016, JGU Mainz

Is there a market for poetry? Poetry is generally considered an outsider in the book industry. But since Jan Wagner received the award of the Leipzig Booklogo_JGU Fair, poetry has been discussed widely again. The time has come to seriously consider the economics of poetry and ask, how market-friendly poems are produced, designed, funded and published. Under the direction of PD Dr. Alexander Nebrig, visiting professor at the Institute for Book Studies of JGU Mainz, the annual Mainzer Kolloquium, which brings scholars and publishing practitioners together to discuss trends in the industry, will consider the economics of poetry publishing. Among others, Michael Krüger and Daniela Seel (kookbooks) will speak. The complete program can be downloaded here.
