Literary Citizen-and why you should be one #litcitizenPosted: March 28, 2014
THANK YOU SO MUCH Cheryl Russell for talking about Literary Citizenship and for inviting my students to contribute to your blog.
Lit Citizen-literary citizen. Loose definition—promoting others’ work over your own.
It’s a concept worth practicing—share others’ work instead of relentlessly promoting your own. But not just anyone’s work; share work you believe in.
*Read books and share the good stories, across all genres. Read, and then promote the work that you believe needs shared with the literary world.
*Support literary magazines through subscriptions if you can; but at the very least track down issues at a library, read, and then share the stories that resonated with you with others.
*Buy books and post reviews of the ones you believe need more readers.
*Support authors you enjoy by sharing their work and sending them a note of encouragement/appreciation.
