Medium's Social, Intuitive and Immediate Publishing Experience With VP of Content Sophie Moura - Beyond Your Blog Podcast #48

This week we’re talking to a site that’s a little bit different from our typical submission sites. It’s a site where you publish your work immediately and don’t have to wait for an editor to approve it. It’s also a site that welcomes work that has been previously published on your personal blog and lets you retain all rights to your work. Finally, Medium is a site that offers a highly social platform for writing, reading and editing, different from any site I’ve ever written for. Join me as Content Group Vice President Sophie Moura explains exactly what Medium is and how we can start using and benefitting from it today as both writers and readers.
