Simple–because writers are revolting against the status quo. It’s no longer up to a few publishing elites in New York, Toronto, or London to decide what gets printed. Now, everyone’s voice can be heard.
Gutenberg took literature out of the hands of the nobles and clergy and made it available to the people. The result was an explosion of cultural and intellectual growth like humanity had never seen.
Now we’re in a new phase of the publishing revolution… Gutenberg 2.0, if you will. The self-publishing revolution is the next step on the path. Who knows what cultural and intellectual riches lie waiting to be uncovered? What stifled voices are about to be heard? Is one of them yours?
Quality is still important. Too many people are hitting the print button without knowing what goes into creating an enduring work of art. Once you’ve typed THE END, you’ve really only arrived at the beginning. Now begins a long process of editing, refining, and packaging. These things are important. Quality should not suffer just because the gatekeepers have been chased away.
We hope to show you how to raise the bar. Our decades of combined writing and publishing experience, plus our desire to contribute to the growth of this new way of doing things, is why WritersRevolt.ca exists.
You can join us. We want to share what we know about what makes a mediocre book good, and a good book great. These secrets should be secrets no longer. When one candle lights another, the original flame isn’t lost. It just burns twice as bright.
