13 links on the RWA & epublishing

Recent events (conference decisions, award eligibility & letters from the president) regarding RWA's stance on epublishing has created a flurry of response. Here are 13 articles I read on the subject, in no particular order:

I'll admit, after reading all the articles & responses, I'm a bit burnt out on the subject, but I'm sure that once I get to the National Conference this month, I'll be ready to take up the banner.

It sure doesn't make me want to go out and spend money on a membership. If I want Drama, I'll listen in on my 15yr olds phonecalls LOL .
Happy T13!

Ella Drake said...

Adelle, Yes, lots of blog postings & responses to these issues. As far as membership, I do love being a member of RWA & have gained alot for it. But I do think change will come. It's a matter of when.

Stephanie Adkins said...

Great post, Ella. Yet another reason why I haven't joined RWA. I hope they open their eyes soon. Maybe then I'll join. Happy Thursday. *hugs*

Inez Kelley said...

Count me as in the ones who are not RWA approved and okay with it.

Jennifer McKenzie said...

I think it will take time, but things will change.
Eventually.

I'm going to have to come back and check these out more closely.

Ella,
The field of publishing is changing. Many of my writing friends are published in e-books. I look forward to reading what others are saying about the subject.

Elise Logan said...

great list, Ella. Nice resource for a starting point on the subject.

The only reason for me to join RWA is local chapter programs - and where I am, the local is not terribly useful.

My membership is due at the end of the month. I've been paying close attention to all the hoopla with their stance towards epubs. What to do, what do do? lol

Thanks for the links!

I thought hard about rejoining at the beginning of this year. This has been going on for quite a few years now, and frankly, I think change is going to be very slow. I think the best thing any of us can do is to be informed and boldly march on our chosen career path.

There's always drama where RWA is concerned. Never a dull moment, eh?

What a great and timely topic. Thank you for the links.

Yeah, I'm not interesting in RWA membership either.

Happy TT.

Perhaps I should follow the news better, being a member of RWA, NJRW and FF&P, but I just haven't had the time to follow the hoopla and drama.
Interesting T13.
