      Are Digital Publishers Exploiting Their Authors?

      Digital publishing is changing the game. Here's a thought-provoking piece from The Guardian that explores the effects of this relatively new publishing method on the industry. It's called Digital-Only Imprints in the E-Book Era: Inclusive or Exploitative?

      It has some really interesting points. Here's one of them:

      Digital publishing is not about dumping books on a Kindle. From my experience, it is about bright and talented editors finding work that they love and working with an author to get a book the best it can be. With Carina UK, I have gone through all the processes one ...

      In it, Ian Birrell shares some interesting points on how autism plays a role in the rise of the young activist. Here's a short but insightful excerpt:

      She admitted her passion was partly down to viewing the world in stark terms. The result of her simplistic approach, fuelled by her condition, is that she has presented this issue with more clarity and competence than almost any adult activist or politician in recent ...

      Outdated Australian Policies Are Still Being Used to Discriminate Against Disabled Immigrants

      Australia is still following an outdated policy on disabled immigrants. We learn about it from this interesting article from The Guardian. It's called Australia Tries to Block Disabled People from Coming Here - It's Part of Our Ugly History.

      It shares some intriguing insights still currently held by a lot of our politicians. This one's particularly thought-provoking:

      This system says that we, as Australians, can see no other role for disabled people than as cost burdens. We have no ability to contribute, economically or otherwise in this framework. We have no value, only a cost.

      Take a look ...

      Why Women Are More Susceptible to Impostor Syndrome

      A significantly higher number of women suffer from intense and at times debilitating self-doubt due to a phenomenon called "impostor syndrome". If you've ever had the feeling that you're not really good at all and you've just somehow fooled everyone to think you are, then you might be suffering from impostor syndrome.

      But as Yomi Adegoke writes for The Guardian, it's not your fault. Instead:
