Road Trip Wednesday #74: The Year 2111

Welcome to our 74th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
Assuming we make it through the 2012 apocalypse, what do you imagine the publishing world will look like 100 years from now?


Road Trip Song of the Week:
Skip to the End" by The Futureheads

Next week’s topic:
TBA
Emilia Plater

Emilia is a YA author who avoids studying, food that isn't covered in cheese, and waking up before 10:30AM whenever possible. A bundle of confusions.
