Could Typepad’s Journalist Bailout Program Save Book Reviews?

type.gifRecently Typepad announced a special Journalist Bailout Program, granting recently laid-off reporters a special coverage on their blog network. The company was swamped by applications: “We’ve gotten a flood of submissions, and hadn’t quite planned for this much of a reaction,” they explained.

GalleyCat wonders if any book reviewers or book section reporters joined that stream of applications. With the backing of Typepad’s platform, new book review sites could thrive. If you are a journalist who joined the Typepad bailout program, email GalleyCat to participate in a future feature.

Here’s the original post, if you missed it:

“While we can’t promise it’s going to replace having a full-time writing gig, it gets you up and running with your own site that you can start to benefit from.”
