A Writing Revolution at Seedmagazine.com. “Nearly everyone reads. Soon, nearly everyone will publish.”
That’s not a new idea. “Consumers” who write have been around for a long, long time. I was reminded immediately of The Organization for Transformative Works. And Henry Jenkins’ Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide as well as Fans, Bloggers, and Gamers: Media Consumers in a Digital Age, published in 2006.
I was recently looking for an online newspaper article, and found useful link amalgamation sites: Online Newspapers (U.S.) listed by state, and HomeTown Free Press, which features links to newspapers worldwide.
LibriVox “provides free audiobooks from the public domain” by volunteer readers (sometimes a single book might feature multiple readers). They’re also looking for volunteers!
Finally, Cybereditions “publishes quality non-fiction books as ebooks online or as print-on-demand paperbacks available through bookshops or online suppliers, including Barnes&Noble and Amazon. As an independent publisher, we specialise in academic works or new editions of out-of-print works updated with new introductions, supplementary chapters and revised bibliographies. We welcome submissions by authors.”
