Why are so many talented and creative people getting such a small piece of the pie in today’s publishing and media?
To run your own digital platform you need ninja skills in social media, distribution, monetization… and it’s a full- time gig.
To make a long story short, we have all drastically changed how we consume media. Unfortunately, most online and print magazine publishers are having a hard time adapting to this shift and, as a result, many will soon disappear. Social media still doesn't pay. To run your own digital platform (e.g a blog), you need ninja skills in online marketing, distribution, monetization… and it’s a full-time gig.
However, as the internet evolves we, along with many others in the industry, firmly believe that the big winners in the 21st century will be the most talented creatives. However, the existing world order will have to change for the better.
This is why we built Enliven, as an invite-only, premium publishing platform where all revenue is shared 70/30 in favor of talented creatives who, today, often are at the mercy of social media platforms or stodgy, old-world publishers. If you like, it's a "Spotify for premium editorial lifestyle articles".
There are multiple possible answers to this question. For some of our creatives, getting revenue from editorials is an important part of their income; others view it as a creative outlet and an opportunity to connect and to expose their brand to a global and discerning audience.
Common among all who join Enliven is that they share our vision, that the magazine industry needs to change at its core, both online and offline. Enliven's primary focus is to help you achieve your objectives.
No. Enliven is a curated media platform, and we reserve the right to select which applicants we believe can provide the inspiration and insights to our readers; this also depends on what type of editorial content they seek and consume.
In the end, judging creative work will always be subjective, but we try to be as fair as possible. Please reach out to us +here+ if you are interested in joining Enliven.

If you’re a talented adventurer, photographer, food chef, writer, sommelier, stylist, yoga instructor, or have a similar passion, and you want to connect to a discerning, global audience, then Enliven is right for you. With us, you can focus more on being creative and creating compelling stories, and less on driving traffic and monetization.
As an Enliven creative, you own all the rights to the content you publish on Enliven.
By submitting your articles or media (i.e. text, photos, videos, podcasts, comments and any other assets) to Enliven, you give us a non-exclusive license to publish them on all digital platforms associated with Enliven. This, in simple terms, means that you give us the right to monetize your articles, but you also have the right to publish them elsewhere.
