Audio from the session: Paddling Your Own Waka.
In a world of the internet, global publishing companies no longer have the same power as gatekeepers. This session looks at the possibilities - and problems - of finding your own audience. The session is chaired by Paul Diamond.
A special thank you to the organisers and participants for allowing us to record this event.
