Thanks for this piece. I would love to see more discussions on Medium about growing and maintaining publications. I started a publication that is starting to grow and I am adding new writers every day.
I would love to know how big publications manage all of the submissions? Right now I am a one-person show and my writing is one of many things I do in my professional life.
Do publications like "The Startup" or the Writing Cooperative have a staff they employ? If so, how does that work with the publication itself unable to generate revenue from Medium (all goes to the writers)
I would love to see a piece taking a deep dive into those type of business and logistical questions of when a publication "grows up."
