It’s The Era Of Self-Published Writers

  • 2 min read

The Medium Writers Challenge proves it

Good news for self-published writers!

The Grand Prize and #Death prompt won Randi Ragan — a new writer who self-published her personal essay.

Randi became a member in September. Prior to winning, she had only 7 (!) followers.

Her winning essay received no more than a couple of hundreds of claps and 3 comments prior to winning.

For me, seeing Randi winning the competition, is another proof that Medium is becoming more and more a place where the self-published author can flourish without publications.

A few weeks ago Medium announced they want to support individual writers more instead of publications.

P.S. I Love You, The Post Grad Survival Guide, The Ascent closed recently due to Medium’s statement about the future of this platform.
