We’re Looking for Writers Who Don’t Write
Ezinne Ukoha

Years ago, I was a tech worker focused on publishing tech — working on digitizing content, preserving and disseminating content, modeling data and content, improving publishing workflows… Somewhere in there, an editor friend of mine once told me: if publishers (now we call them media companies) could automate one thing and have it work flawlessly, their first pick would probably be “authors.”

This notion has definitely shaped my (arguably successful) career as an author: the company publishing my work thinks about me the same way they think about, say, a software package.

Love this piece.
