Some of you may remember an anthology I was featured in last year called Share or Die: Youth in Recession. It was an ebook produced by Shareable.net that collected stories by 20-somethings about their experiences as young people during an economic recession. The book included a short comic I drew about my decision to go to art school, as well as a prose piece by my friend Sarah Idzik about a job she hated, which I illustrated.
This anthology is now available in print! You can find in on Amazon.com, under the new title Share or Die: Voices of the Get Lost Generation in the Age of Crisis. The print version of the book includes all of the original essays, comics and how-to guides, as well as a new foreword by Cory Doctorow, and some new content covering the Occupy Wallstreet movement.
Also! To promote the release of Share or Die in print, Shareable.net is holding a storytelling contest. So, for those of you who are good with words or a camera, write a piece or make a video and enter for a chance to win up to $1,000 in credit at an eligible sharing service (you know, like Zipcars and stuff)! They will be taking entries until July 23, 2012, and the first 25 entrants will receive a free copy of Share or Die! If you miss out on those free copies, they’re only $10 on Amazon, so check it out!
