Everyone has a story to tell. Many of us write. Some of us want our work edited and published. Fortunately, more and more innovative options are being developed for writers to share their work.
The latest example I've seen is Unlimited Editions (http://unlimitededitions.ca/) - a truly innovative idea by Dropped Threads co-editor Marjorie Anderson, and published fiction and poetry author Deoborah Schnitzer. These creative women are using technology to reach out internationally to pull writers into a collaborative publishing venture that already has Jack Hodgins and Gail Anderson-Dargatz involved.
Check it out. If you're writing today, you need to stay on top of the latest innovations in your craft.
