Word Smiths

Word Smiths: Sounds to me like Smith Magazine wants to be for writer/bloggers what JPG Magazine is for photographer/photo-sharers.

Magazine industry history buffs (we meet in a phone booth) know that a magazine comprised of “reader-contributed-stories” is not a new concept. Indeed, all of the magazines from Reiman Publications are created that way and depend exclusively on subscription revenue — no ads. A few years ago, Readers Digest purchased the magazines for something like $750 million.
