The Frontlist: Digg for wannabe writers


Every writer, save a lucky few goes through the timeless chore of knocking on publishers’ and agents’ doors, hoping somebody might give some time to their manuscript and one day, okay it for printing.

The Frontlist (www.thefrontlist.com) is site where users submit their work, and review and rank others’ works. The idea is that slowly traditional book companies will pay attention to the top ranked story and pick them up. The Guardian reports that a couple of agents and publishers have already evinced interest in the project.

To reach a critical mass, the site will need a big pool of writers and publishers and agents as supporters.
Moreover, at prsent does not have a Web 2.0-type sub,ission, excerpts, rating look on the front page.

The Frontlist also gives me a couple of ideas:
1. It may also become a viral generator for good works.
2. Writers who get good rankings may then approach Print on Demand service providers such as Lulu.com and become publishers themselves.
