A next-generation publishing conference

Explore what publishing is and can be

Building on the best of Books in Browsers and Tools of Change, PageBreak is a community-driven conference focused on sharing the ways that the publishing industry is moving beyond traditional models and embracing emergent technologies, workflows, and processes.

Hot topics in 2023

Single-Source Publishing and AI

AI is the question in everyone's minds these days: how can it be used within the publishing ecosystem? Where will the disruptions happen, and what are the ethics surrounding it?

"Single-source publishing" means centralizing your content and editing in a primary text file, and then generating all your required output formats from that primary source of truth. (For more background, here are a couple of posts from our organizers.) One of the most common pieces of feedback that comes up in any discussion of single-source publishing is: how can my organization implement this?

PageBreak brings together a deep network of thought-leaders to present background, roadmaps, and case studies on these topics and many more. Need to learn more before our next event? Feel free to reach out to our conference organizers at

Join Us at Our Next Event

We seek to foster a community of people who are excited about building change together, and willing to try new things.

Whether you're an industry veteran thinking about the future of publishing, an entrepreneur launching your own publishing-related business, a student of publishing and media, or anyone with curiosity, vision, and interest in learning about new ways of interacting on the web, you are welcome at PageBreak 2023.

The two-day in-person event will feature engaging talks and panels, with ample opportunities to network, brainstorm, and socialize in an "unconference" style.
