May 28, 2019 Derek Askey on writing for a living, finding a niche, and how independent publishing stays alive

There are very few magazines these days that really venture into the same territory as The Sun. It's a completely independent, advertising-free publication that provides a platform for some of the most exceptional writing and photography on the planet (is this guy's opinion, anyway). Derek Askey is one of the assistant editors of The Sun, and his journey from aspiring but hesitant writer to editorial staff is worth hearing about, and maybe a little familiar.
