For this episode, join us as we chat with Jay Swanson, Author and Publisher of many works including the new, real-time series Into the Nanten, and Russ Davis, owner of publishing company Gray Dog Press. Listen in as we talk with Jay and Russ about:
- How the publishing and writing industry is changing, and what authors and publishers are both doing to adapt
- What the challenges are to mixing creativity and livelihood
- How Spokane's arts and literature scene has changed over time, and what's perhaps next for our community.
