Hi!

I've been on TSR Politics for a while now and have debated, questioned and scrutinised with all you fellow human beings on a number of different issues.

I chose to be a part of the TSR Politics community because, as a young person, I think people in our age bracket should express ourselves and bring about societal change from a grassroots level. Thankfully, our presence here on this niche platform of the Internet has run concurrent with a whole wave of student movements across the world.

From Great Thunberg's protests on climate change (yes I know she's controversial!) to the hundreds of students who marched against the UK governments 2020 exams fiasco, young people around the globe have shown that they are interested and involved with political issues that affect them directly.

That's why in lock down I decided to compile a series of essays on a whole range of issues that I felt were relevant in this moment of history. I've been thinking of publishing these essays as a book (probs selling for like 3 quid) to help stimulate a discussion and debate amongst young people especially. I've also been thinking of doing it because politics is one of the few areas of academia where I actually enjoy writing at length about.

So what do you think? Should I self publish?

Don't do it! Book publishing is costly and unless you sell a lot you're out of pocket. Most authors lose money when they push for their own book to be published

Yeah! Being an author is only profitable when you sell a sizeable chunk. If you don't you're always out of pocket.

Good luck!
Out of interest was that a typo when you wrote 'great Thunbergs protests'?

Not especially, you can easily self publish for a pittance.

I'd reccoend it, i had a friend who published some short stories she wrote with it and found it quite enjoyable. Just be sure to get the thing proof read properly or people will rip you a new one in the reviews for it :lol:

Create a YouTube channel and read your essays in a podcast.

Autocorrect once made me write about ”Satsuma Rees-Mogg”.
