Pigeon Post: The use of homing pigeons to carry messages. Pigeons were effective as messengers due to their natural homing abilities. The pigeons were transported to a destination in cages, where they would be attached with messages, then naturally the pigeon would fly back to its home where the owner could read his mail. (wiki)
Like the carrier pigeons who transported important messages throughout world history, The Pigeon Post.org carries the messages of insightful news, commentary, literature and the arts for the discerning reader. The Pigeon Post is dedicated to providing thought-provoking and intelligent independent journalism to an electronic market saturated with poorly written and often regurgitated content not fit for pigeon droppings.
The Pigeon Post is operated by Curl Publishing Inc, a publishing corporation dedicated to giving a larger voice to independent writers and journalists and providing an equitable distribution of profits among all full-time contributors. If you are an independent writer and/or journalist looking to join our small family, please look over our contract and submit some sample writings or previously published articles to: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what your professional and creative vision for the future is. We believe we are creating a site that promotes equality among our writers and resents the inherit exploitation of so many writers by an industry that does not value the written word.
At this time, we are not accepting occasional submissions for publication, nor will we re-publish an article that has already appeared on another site as we are dedicated to providing original content and, unlike many similar sites, paying talented writers and journalists for their original work. As of now, we simply do not have the budget to to pay on an article-by-article basis, though it is our hope that within a year, paying for quality articles will be a reality and any writer that publishes well-written articles of original content will be paid what they deserve for their hard work. To imply that publishing your original work on this site would give you more “publicity” or more traffic to your own site would be insulting to your intelligence as any publicity or traffic gains would be negligible at best, regardless of the traffic this site generates. We have a simple concept at The Pigeon Post: producing quality and original writing is a skill-set limited to a relatively small number of the population and therefore deserves appropriate compensation. Do not let anyone sell your talents short and sell you out to give their site more traffic, resulting in greater advertising revenue for them; not you, the talented writer who has no obligation to work for free.
