Our new weekly newsletter is a hand-picked roundup of the latest news in publishing, sent to a discerning group of people who are invested in the future of the industry.

If you want to stay in the loop with the most important news and information in the publishing industry, but don't have the time to sift through the news, you can sign up for our newsletter - Publisher Weekly - and get the week's hot takes delivered to your inbox every single Sunday.

What's behind all this?

Digital publishing is rapidly evolving before us as the landscape of technology, business models and responsible journalism shifts. We're at a critical point where advertising money is fast disappearing and public trust in media is at an all time low. Clickbait is a dying trend and there's an abundance of information and distraction out there. How do publishers who want to make a difference in their field navigate these changing tides?

We tried to find a newsletter to sign up to ourselves but couldn't find what we were looking for, so we decided to make one ourselves. Publisher Weekly consolidates the best information about what the future of publishing looks like for all of us and it is delivered to you, for free, once per week.

Ghost has a vested interest in the future of publishing - the driving force behind our mission is to build open source tools that allow independent publishers and writers to share their ideas with the world. The future of online media is changing and we're excited to see how we all collectively play a part in that.

Publisher Weekly – An ongoing examination of what the future of publishing might hold, who the key players are, and what's coming next for all of us.
