If you see techno-heavy posts from Joanna Penn on our newswire or elsewhere and panic a bit over the terminology, hear us out.
(First, we’ll reassure you that you’re not alone — we often have to take a deep breath and comfy seat, too.)
A recent episode of her Creative Penn podcast discussed some terms that you may have seen in your non-writing life: blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFT), to be specific.
Even if the thought of those interacting with your writing career makes you break out in hives, the explanations of them given by Penn and her guest, Simon-Pierre Marion, are worth checking out just so you can follow the news, for example.
And once you read on, you’ll find fascinating opportunities could await any creatives who make their work available digitally — and could await their consumers, too.
Penn’s blog has a transcript of the conversation about blockchain for publishing and a link to the podcast audio.
