Publishing Tales: Stories about Literature from across the Web (Feb 26 – Mar 5)

Each week, we collect stories about self-publishing and authorship in the digital age. These are some of our favorites. If we’ve missed a good one, leave it in the comments. Or send us a note.

Culturally, we’re intrigued by the ways in which literature and writing are integrated into daily life.

New Media in Magazines

This isn’t exactly book writing, but it’s still in the neighborhood of long form.
