Highlights from Draft 8.1 (The Sort-of-Cyber-Edition)

On August 12, 2012, the Draft Reading Series and Merchants of Green Coffee hosted Draft 8.1 – The Sort-of-Cyber-Edition.

Found Press played a huge part in the proceedings, with both staff and authors participating in the readings and round table discussions about how digital publishing can inhabit the physical world.

Shout out to everyone who attended! It was a hell of a lot of fun, and constructive to boot. Let’s do it again some time?
