There’s an interesting new article over on The Atlantic magazine … a look at a recently released collection of essays and interviews which break one of the biggest taboos of the literary world … cold hard cash and why “More Writers Should Talk About” the Money!

It examines the death of opportunities to make a paying living as a writer, including in both journalism and fiction writing.

Oh, and the book in question is called Scratch: Writers, Money, and the Art of Making a Living if you fancy looking the work up.
