Publishing and adapting to the digital world
4th December 2020 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Our Creative Carmarthenshire session this week will be focusing on the world of book publishing.
We will hear from Dr Ffion Eluned Owen, Head of Projects and the Curriculum for Atebol, about how Atebol is adapting to the digital world in response to the current situation.
Ffion will talk about her career so far and how she came to work with Atebol. She’ll talk about the work of the company and what’s the process of publishing a book or resource, and the challenges and opportunities that arise in adapting to the digital world. Many Atebol books are becoming e-books or use the CLS Platform for electronic delivery of books to schools. This promises to be an interesting session and we look forward to hearing about how the sector are adapting in the current climate.
