This is a thing now, isn't it? I've been told I should be doing this.

Everything you said in the last paragraph is true...but, given the nature of publishing and the internet these days? There's actually some quality work here. Hard to find through all the dreck. But it's here. Medium is making it more difficult for some reason and I don't understand that.

And it's a great place for young talented writers to work things out...given the opportunity...when they aren't swamped under by those pretentious "I'm so GREAT" writers who try to ace the space away from them instead of helping. There should be more real help and less "join my club" and "follow the leader."
