Meredith Sue Willis begins with her personal journey from a little girl making stapled, hand-illustrated horse stories through publishing novels with commercial presses and small presses to creating websites and online newsletters and literary journals. She will speak more generally about how computers and the Internet have changed writing as well as publishing, with references to issues like Net Neutrality, the Creative Commons versus Copyright; electronic books; types of publishing now, and how Facebook and other social media take the place of reading and creative writing for some people. There will be ample time for dialogue. Meredith Sue Willis has published more than twenty books. Her new novel, Their Houses, is coming out in August 2018, from WVU Press.
