Well, actually, two bloggers. We’re holding a competition to find two bloggers to write fortnightly for the Meanland project. The winners will receive a one-off prize of $200, and be paid $75 per week to blog and tweet. One runner-up will receive $100 and have their entry published online. Meanland, ‘reading in a time of change’, is dedicated to looking at the ‘what’ and increasingly the ‘how’ of the digital revolution and its impact on publishing. Issues we’ve covered include: the collapse of the distinction between readers and writers as more people become involved in creating content; the cultural and political impact of the unparalleled monopolies emerging in the digital landscape; and the psychological consequences of reading and writing online. To enter: Email .doc entries for one of the topics below to Meanjin’s Deputy Editor Zora Sanders with Meanland blog entry in the title. Prize: Two winners will receive $200 each. The winners will become Meanland bloggers, to be paid $75 fortnightly from then on. Plus, one runner-up will receive $100. Deadline: 5pm 16 May. Word limit:1000 words. The topics: • Digital writing, which uses linking, video and commentary, is a return to oral storytelling traditions • The Internet has not impacted upon my reading habits in the slightest • Speaking of paywalls… • Creative solutions to old media problems: what will reading be like in the coming decades? So, get your boots on and start writing! Want to help us promote the position? Download the comp pdf.
