Frankfurt Book Fair for Authors
Porter Anderson is a career journalist whose venues have included three of Time Warner’s CNN networks, the Village Voice, Thought Catalog, Publishing Perspectives, The Bookseller, The FutureBook, the Dallas Times Herald, Dallas Observer, D Magazine, the Tampa Tribune, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, and other media.
He is Editor-in-Chief of Publishing Perspectives, the Frankfurt Book Fair-owned magazine focused on the international publishing scene and founded in 2009 by the German Book Office in New York City. Anderson gave a keynote address at Frankfurt’s Singapore Publishing Symposium in late 2015 and for several years has programmed events in Frankfurter Buchmesse’s Business Club and author-training programs.
Most recently, Anderson co-founded The Hot Sheet with his longtime colleague Jane Friedman, former publisher of Writer’s Digest and now teaching at the University of Virginia. The Hot Sheet is the essential publishing industry newsletter for authors, delivered every other Wednesday via email. With a brand promise of “no drama, no hype,” The Hot Sheet is drawing loud acclaim for its incisive analysis of industry news not hobbled by the emotionality that pervades so much of the blog world and author-forum scene today.
