The other day, a writer reached out to me and asked me why specific people are constantly recommended on Medium’s site and others don’t.
I asked her who she meant.
One of the names was Susan Orlean.
Susan Orlean is an independent writer.
She‘s a staff writer for the New Yorker and also an award-winning author of eight books. The Orchid Thief is one of her books.
- You can “meet” Susan on Medium’s homepage as one of the Top Voices.
- Medium’s staff relates to her.
- Additionally, she was one of the judges of the Summer of Writing Contest in 2021.
I did a little research and found out that Susan was/is part of a Medium program with the codename:
Apparently, Orlean was paid $25,000.
This sum should encourage her to write regularly on Medium.
