Literary Agent Offers Predictions for Publishing in 2022

Laurie McLean, a literary agent, provides a list of predictions for the publishing industry in 2022 on a blog run by publishing industry veterans Anne R. Allen and Ruth Harris.

McLean writes, “Once the streaming binge of Netflix, Disney+, Hulu and other channels grew a bit stale, people rediscovered books and how reading engages the imagination making it a totally different enjoyment experience than passively watching a screen. Books have been selling at a brisk pace ever since. And the profits reaped by the publishing giants has soared. I wish some would make it back to writers and the publishing staff, but that’s another story altogether.”

Predictions include “Hybrid workplaces will deepen and New York will be the center of publishing in name only,” “Supply chain and paper shortage woes will continue,” and “Publishing mergers will take center stage.”
