"Capitalism, Writers, and the Tangled Web" Editorial by Cat McDonald

Submitted by Jen Laface on Tue, 06/05/2012 - 12:36

Web publishing is a hell of a thing. You probably knew this already; you’ve probably already read fiction online, maybe read a comic or watched a web series. Maybe a family member or coworker has emailed you a cute picture or an interesting article. You might even follow a blog, a comic, a YouTube channel, or some other web product. Even if you’re not a regular internet user, you’re probably pretty used to being told that the internet is the wave of the future and that books are going out of style any day now. Well, that may or may not be true.
