New site allows readers to sponsor favourite journalists
Issued on: Modified:
In the past decade, social media have made it possible for journalists to market their work directly to readers in a way they never could before. But freelance journalists across the world are still looking for new ways to get their work out there and get paid for it. BeaconReader.com, a new online platform, helps them do just that. By allowing readers to follow and financially support their favourite writers, the recently-launched website gives an idea of how journalism can reinvent itself and evolve. RFI spoke with Adrian Sanders, one of the founders of BeaconReader.com.
