&NOW is pleased to present a panel of innovative publishers to discuss the present and future of literary publishing.  We’ve invited Richard Nash of Red Lemonade and Soft Skull Presses, Rebecca Wolff of Fence Magazine and Fence Books, and Mónica de la Torre of BOMB Magazine to present their ideas of where literary publishing is today and how it might evolve.    We believe this panel will be invaluable to our students and other conference participants, as it will bring to our conference a frank and practical discussion of literary publishing’s future from three of the most innovative and important literary and artistic publishing projects in the country.

BOMB Magazine delivers the artist’s voice through in-depth interviews between artists working across genre and media—collaborations that reveal their ideas, concerns, and creative processes through carefully developed dialogue—now and for posterity.
Named after Wyndham Lewis’s influential 1914 journal Blast, BOMB Magazine was launched in 1981 because its founders saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way it was described by critics. As a result, BOMB reinvented the question-and-answer format, developing an editorial method that delves deep into theory and practice, helping complex discussions to emerge. Like Blast, BOMB is edited by artists and writers.
Celebrating its 32nd year, BOMB pairs artists in conversation based on the relevance of their work to one another and nuances of personality. We transform lively, raw conversation into intellectually stimulating, yet immediate exchanges available on multiple platforms and across the web.

Founded in 1998 by Rebecca WolffFence is a biannual journal of poetry, fiction, art, and criticism that has a mission to redefine the terms of accessibility by publishing challenging writing distinguished by idiosyncrasy and intelligence rather than by allegiance with camps, schools, or cliques. It is Fence‘s mission to encourage writing that might otherwise have difficulty being recognized because it doesn’t answer to either the mainstream or to recognizable modes of experimentation. Fence is long-term committed to publishing from the outside and the inside of established communities of writing, seeking always to interrogate, collaborate with, and bedevil other systems that bring new writing to light.

Red Lemonade is a publishing community of fiction and highly narrative non-fiction. We avoid labeling what we do but it tends to be risky, socially charged, misbehaving stuff. Red Lemonade is for the writers other publishers are afraid of.
But Red Lemonade is also a pilot for a massively ambitious adventure, to create a new platform (part webapp, part business process) for independent publishing, combining the best of editorial judgment and publicity moxie with community input into acquisition and promotion, and combining the tradition publisher/retailer process with digital publishing and limited editions.
