Aaron Sorkin On Writing & Creativity

Trust Aaron Sorkin to always offer great advice on writing and creativity! ✨

A writer behind many fantastic movies — Sorkin was at the Adobe Summit, where he spoke about content creation in the time of advanced technology.

While he shared great advice on writing and drama, something he said about technology can reassure most creators who are worried AI might replace them. 👇

He says this attitude stems from him sitting in a room with technology experts and not knowing anything. I feel left behind, he adds.

TikTok Influencers to Published Authors? Thanks to Bindery

Bindery, a studio of creators and makers who believe in telling stories that matter and endure the test of time, is doing something interesting. 📚

Well, you've all heard of #BookTok and literary influencers on TikTok. These influencers can make or break the success of a book. And now, Binder is offering them an opportunity to become writers themselves. 🤯

Bindery works with literary influencers and creators, and has recently announced its first four book deals with writers handpicked from TikTok.

A Tubefilter report said, “The books picked up by Bindery are not published under a single imprint. Instead, the individual creators who work with the company control their own presses, allowing them to select titles that will be most relevant among their fans. For Jaysen Headley, the TikToker known as Ezeekat, a foray into publishing begins with House of Frank by Kay Sinclaire, a “cozy fantasy” set in a “magical arboretum sanctuary.” Headley will release House of Frank through Ezeekat Press, the subscription-based community he launched alongside Bindery.”

All the four books will be out in fall 2024. Are you excited for this?
