Journalism has always attracted the creative and resourceful. As our trade is being transformed as never before by technology, it should hardly be surprising that practitioners around the world are finding new ways to share profitably what they write.
Profound changes are also shaking up the publishing world, causing traditional publishers to become even more risk-averse. As a result, increasing numbers of authors are exploring other ways of reaching readers.
Unlike previous shake-ups of our sector, however, the digital revolution is bringing creators of content, be they journalists or writers, closer than ever before to readers. It is also providing a dizzying array of new revenue models that, in some cases, are funding a blossoming of quality reporting, at precisely the time pundits are reading journalism’s last rites. This publication tells that story by way of some compelling examples.
