If you are not planning to micro-publish in 2014, why not? It's time to get with the program, no matter how much professional writing experience you already have.
 
"A meaningful discussion of micro-publishing has been pushed aside during the ongoing tug-of-war between traditional publishing and independent publishing (self-publishing). But we are well beyond 'everyone is a writer' at this point. We have progressed into 'everyone is a publisher,' if they wish to be—and we have been living in this realm for some time already." 

Insight and advice into how micro-publishing fits into your overall career, by +Christina Katz.

Introduction

Christina Katz has trained thousands of writers over the past fourteen years via her books, speeches, classes, columns, workshops, articles, challenges, and blog posts. Christina earns thousands of dollars a year as a writer of both traditionally published and self-published content. Longtime students who train with Christina also learn how to earn thousands of dollars a year working either part-time or full-time.

Christina’s students often become award-winning writers whose words are published in print and online around the globe. She teaches them how to maximize their value by leveraging work into multiple formats in timely and timeless ways. Professionals who work with her learn to focus, work hard, and consistently flex their creative muscles in order to achieve long-term career success.

Christina troubleshoots with writers by phone and coaches a select group of writers in Dream Teams on career growth. Students call Christina a “gentle taskmaster,” who walks them from start to finish through projects like getting published, creating a writer platform, and writing and publishing a nonfiction book.

Christina specializes in helping writers prosper within a constantly evolving publishing marketplace. Her mission is to inspire writers to take ownership of their writing careers without diminishing the joy and satisfaction they experience in the creative process. Christina offers video courses on helpful aspects of career success. She also offers e-mail prompt challenges, which start monthly and arrive in participant inboxes daily.

Christina offers phone consultations for authors and aspiring authors by appointment. She also teaches creativity for personal growth and writing for pleasure. Highlights of Christina’s career include appearing on Good Morning America, becoming a three-time author for Writer’s Digest, and traveling to writing conferences all over the country as a featured instructor, panelist, and keynote speaker.

Christina lives in Oregon with her multi-talented husband, Jason, her delightful daughter, Samantha, and their four rather spoiled pets. You can connect with her continually on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Jason and Christina collaborate on their Etsy shop, Words, Glorious Words!, which offers inspirational writing and creativity posters via digital download.

If you are seeking to establish your name as a professional communicator in any creative field, try an online course or daily prompt challenge with Christina Katz. And be sure to subscribe to Christina’s blog at ChristinaKatz.com and to The Prosperous Writer e-zine for inspiration and instruction to encourage you on your writing journey.
