Dogs fighting over scraps?

8 Jul

Further to my post yesterday, we get word today out of England of a calamitous drop in writer’s incomes. Hey, friend, become an acclaimed authour — live in poverty.

Meanwhile, Tee Morris give a good summary of the latest fights between the ‘Friends of Amazon’ and the ‘Friends of Legacy Publishing.’ As he, and others have noted, maybe what we need is ‘Friends of Authors’ and let the folks from the .01% fight their own fights.

But what would the ‘Friends of Authors’ look like? A union, a rejuvenated public program to support the arts, a return to the system of ‘patrons?’

Stay tuned.
