Publishing’s a yes-or-no decision, binary determination of value and if the tale is told: needing rationales, synopses, presentations, story boards, support material and multi-media interpretation. An explosion of curation talk: determinedly showing the value of the interventions.

Points of view, shaped and burnished before punters’ comments are allowed, with designers and printers who intervene to shape the process. Standing between writer and reader, agents, consultants, editors and curatorial voices articulate deep open publishing messages.

Yes is yes, no is no, or start again, revise, reconsider, resubmit.
