Is This the Future of Publishing?

May 20th, 2008

I’m thrilled to have received permission to post Heidi Julavits’ short piece of creative nonfiction, “The Writers in the Silos.” It projects the future of publishing as nothing has before.

I first encountered it in the September 2007 issue of Harper’s Magazine, though it was a reprint from “Creative Nonfiction Issue #31: Imagining the Future,” published by the provocative journal Creative Nonfiction.

As I wrote to Ms. Julavits when I discovered “The Writers in the Silos”: It’s hilarious, of course, but also wonderfully anarchic and apparently prescient. I was completely delighted to have found it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
