O fim do fim do livro | PublishNews

O fim do fim do livro | PublishNews | Litteris | Scoop.it
Durante séculos, o impresso veio sendo cultuado, adornado com design espetacular, orelhas inteligentes, rosto encantador. Um produto multissensorial. Seus autores tratados como estrelas, seus editores reverenciados. E seus locais de encontro com o leitor, as livrarias, locais frequentados e amados por toda gente. O livro impresso, como o garfo e a faca, disse Umberto Eco, são objetos definitivos. Algumas poucas inovações surgiram através dos tempos. Recentemente, surgiu o aparelho eletrônico para leitura. Trouxe uma série de alternativas e de facilidades para os leitores. Bem-vindas novidades. Mas os donos do negócio tinham pressa. Uma pressa que se mostrou um tanto desconectada. Seria mais rápido destruir o que já havia. Varrer o concorrente do mapa. Acabar com o livro impresso. Segundo essa distopia, ele seguiria moribundo. Discutia-se a data final. O avanço do e-book seria exponencial. Nesse ano de 2017, já só restariam cinzas de livros e livrarias. As editoras também: essas faleceriam por absoluta obsolescência. O fato é que as coisas foram se acomodando. A sociedade se manifestou. O livro eletrônico vai ocupando seu lugar.  Modesto, embora ainda com perspectivas de crescimento. O livro impresso, livrarias e editores sofreram. Hoje as notícias são de retomada no crescimento de vendas, surgimento de novas livrarias pelo mundo afora. Evidencias da manifestação da sociedade e do seu desejo pelo sagrado objeto multissensorial, o livro! Do meu ponto de vista, o ponto de vista dos livreiros, contamos perdas, mas agora já estamos à vontade para comemorar a certeza do fim do fim do livro!

E pro escriba, não vai nada? | PublishNews

"Estive por esses dias na primeira edição da Flipelô - Festa Literária do Pelourinho. De modo que evoco o saudoso João Ubaldo Ribeiro para o assunto das mal tecladas linhas que seguem. Especificamente, a conhecida crônica O conselheiro come, em que o autor tratou da banalização que o trabalho do escritor recebe nestas plagas. Disse o baiano: “acho que foi o Paulo Francis que se queixou, já faz algum tempo, do volume de trabalho de graça que aqui esperam dele. Agora me queixo eu. O Brasil, me parece, é campeão nesse tipo de prática”. Em seguida, listou a quantidade de encomendas que lhe chegavam com frequência, as quais iam desde a solicitação de aspirantes a escritor para que lesse – e elogiasse – originais, pedidos para que fizesse trabalhos universitários e outras demandas. Tudo sem receber um tostão."

Writing as Discovery: When Process Defaults to Script

Writing as Discovery: When Process Defaults to Script | Litteris | Scoop.it
For most people, I imagine, vacations spur thoughts of welcomed relief from day-to-day routines and obligations. But as a writer—one who writes almost daily—I find vacation’s necessary break from routine is almost unbearable. My ideal existence would include waking early, 5:30 or 6, and then shuffling through my morning ritual online—some things practical and some, quasi-recreational/quasi-professional—while…

Why libraries are the best place for us to work. | Caravan Studios | Medium.com

Why libraries are the best place for us to work. | Caravan Studios | Medium.com | Litteris | Scoop.it

At Caravan Studios, our participatory methodology fuels everything we do. It’s the how behind our work, and public engagement and ownership is a big part of that how. Recently, I shared a concept note that described the first part of this methodology. The note was geared toward people who might be interested in testing (and funding) the effort in their community of interest. In it, I said, as I often do, that libraries are the places where we hold events.

Why libraries? One person asked. Why not innovation hubs, or co-working spaces?

This is a great question. While there is nothing wrong with those spaces, for our work, libraries are EXACTLY the right place.

When I was writing my dissertation, I sat in the library each day I was on campus. Colleagues knew it was where I was and it was central to my writing. When I went somewhere else, the walk was meditative, clarified what I was writing, and cleared my mind.

We need libraries in our schools to be gathering places and places of solitude.
