With the current state of literary publishing, especially in journals and magazines, many authors (if not most!) don’t receive any payment for their work despite the countless hours they’ve put into it. Because of this, I’m encouraging lit journals, online or in print, to make space after each piece they publish for a short mention of how people can tip the author to show a little appreciation if they enjoyed their work and have the means to do so. Although this isn’t a solution for adequately compensating creative writers, it could be a start to something better.
