Seven Stories Press Runs Indie Risks, Reaps A Nobel Prize Winner


Running an independent press isn’t easy in an era of consolidation – and in a pandemic. Seven Stories’ editor-in-chief: “As a business the time of greatest risk—and very possibly also of greatest reward—is right now, this year, next year. We’re on a growth curve, which has not always been the case. The marketplace for books actually grew in America last year, but at the same time it is much harder today for independent publishers to break out a book than it was even as recently as a decade ago. We just have no idea what things are going to be like really post-COVID.” – LitHub
