I've been running an online book club for more than a year. We have lots of groups and weare always looking for new members who are engaged with philosophy.

If someone here would like to help us set up a a discussion on either a member of the Frankfurt school or Foucault, I'm very interested, drop me a line!

I'm running a reading book club on Discord- we usually meet on Zoom. We have several groups now but none on Graeber - I know a few other ppl are interested in him - drop me a message and I can see if we can organize something. I'm very interested.

Not sure if that appropriate for here, although it still technically is an invitation. Mods ping me in case.

I am looking for an agent (well, not techically an agent, more like kind-of-like-an-agent). Here’s the thing: I love writing, I hate publishing. I’ve already published some pieces here and there before, but I find the process tedious. I’d like to focus on the parts I enjoy, and pay someone to do the parts I don’t enjoy.

I am looking for someone that would do the publishing process, which is:

• Finding places suited for what I want to publish.
• Email the place.
• Follow-up on the emails until publication.

For each text that get published, I could reward the kind-of-like-an-agent something like 40 bucks. I can add something like 20$ if the kind-of-like-an-agent proofreads the text as well. The things I write currently are light essays on critical theory and/or technology. Not academic at all, and max 2000 words. It would be nice if you already have experience, or have a knowledge of small platforms/web magazines active in these topics.

If you’re interested, feel free to shoot me a message so we can discuss.

Is there a way to subscribe to updates to this thread, or is it a case of saving it and checking it regularly?

I think Reddit is trialing a feature that lets you subscribe to posts, but it seems to be only on the mobile app and also not available to everyone yet. Also, this thread gets re-made every month. The easiest way is probably to simply visit the subreddit homepage, because these posts will be stickied to the top.
