At the suggestion of a listener, in this special bonus episode we’re discussing self-publishing, copyright, and how evolving digital technologies might influence both writers and publishers. Should writers and publishers embrace Creative Commons licenses and post their work online for free? Is copyright an outmoded idea? How can writers balance the desire to make a living with the desire to reach a wide reading audience?
Consider this like a Writers Ask episode with just one question–or, maybe several related questions, all circling around issues of copyright and ownership. We’d love to hear what you think: feel free to leave a comment here on the site, shoot us an email, or hit us up on Twitter.
As always, you can stream the episode here on our site, or check us out in the iTunes store, where you can download individual episodes or subscribe (for free) and never miss another installment. We’ll be back on Monday with another regular episode, on Jesmyn Ward’s Men We Reaped: A Memoir.
Thanks for listening!
