Passing the Hat?

October 4, 2009

Amanda Palmer asks an interesting question. Are the changes we see in the media publishing world going to mean that all artists will soon be passing the hat to earn a living? It might be one of the options as things shake out.

Is Patronage the answer? Is one question discussed on Futurismic.

A similar question is whether authors should get paid more now that we are doing more of the work. M.J. Rose thinks Publishers Must Change the Way Authors Get Paid.

And here’s a series of essays on self-publishing that also generate some good questions.

What do you think?

    The one constant is change, but unfortunately often without destination or compass. Sorry to say, it appears that’s where publishing is right now.
