ABQWriter and Everyone,
Its a different calculation than on previous content sites. FieldReports goal is to become a legitimate advocate and representative for writers and their stories, in a world wherelet’s face itthere are not many profitable outlets for this type of writing. If our site generates significant notoriety for a piece, and we prove that we are helping to sell it for the writer, we earn a commission and a long-term relationship as the representative of that piece. If a piece just sits there and goes nowhere, then the author is entitled to try other options.
At the moment were in a beta test, and there are very few pieces vying for the $20,000 first prize and another $20,000 in category prizes well be awarding a month from now. Its pretty good odds, but it may not be for everyone or every piece.
