5 Ways to Follow the Publishing Industry
For the month of March, my goal is to get better at keeping up with the publishing industry. Why? Well, first of all because if I want to be published I feel like I shouldn’t be stumbling blindly into a industry with out-of-date information and no pulse on what’s happening. Secondly, because Random House and Penguin had a huge merger 2013 and I didn’t find out until a few weeks ago. So… clearly I need to pay more attention.
I’ve compiled a list of five resources that I already am using (or need to start using) to follow publishing news. I’m going to try to get in the habit of checking these out twice a week.
(links and tips over here)

My Nigeria So Far

Snippets of finally living back home after 9 years. Captured among family and friends between Lagos, Aba and Umuahia. There’s the heat, the traffic and no electricity, but all that fades for the better moments- Yagazie Emezi

WHAT IF WE LOST THE AMAZON?

Its not only climate change but a myriad of other things that people can actually help combat by making changes. The Brazilian government recently just revoked a slew of laws that environmentally protected parts of the Amazon. The growing cattle industry, kept alive by the globe’s growing consumption of meat (the U.S is the second largest consumer of meat in the world), leads to deforestation, soil erosion and Co2 emissions. 

If we loose the amazon, we loose the most biologically diverse place on earth, not to mention a major CO2 bank (meaning that the massive amounts of rain forests absorb large amounts of CO2 which in turn inhibits it from entering the atmosphere) along with the displacement and eventual degradation of all of the indigenous cultures and people who inhabit the Amazon and depend on it for their livelihood.

“In a way, her strangeness, her naïveté, her craving for the other half of her equation was the consequence of an idle imagination. Had she paints, or clay, or knew the discipline of the dance or strings; had she anything to engage her tremendous curiosity and gift for metaphor, she might have exchanged the restlessness and preoccupation with whim for an activity that provided her with all she yearned for.

And like any artist with no art form, she became dangerous.”
