Not to try and lure any of you folks away from WordPress, but I’ve started a Publication on Medium called the ‘Hair of the Dog.’ My inspiration came from the poem by Baudelaire, if you read it you’ll know just what I’m looking for. I want to create a space where people can share work that neither tries too hard nor is too cool for school. I want the kind of writing that you do for the sheer bubbly good feeling of creation and not something that worries about mainstream appeal. It could be fiction, or poetry, or essays, so long as it was written with love.
This isn’t really a platform to make money, but it could be a way we all find an audience together. There’s strength in numbers after all.Anyway, it’s always nice to have another name to include on your cover letter for places you’ve published before. And when you submit a piece you can include somewhere in it a link back to your WordPress page. Market yourself without killing your darlings.
Just a thought. Let me know if you’re interested.
