We sincerely can’t get enough good news about these guys.
The Awl will begin paying writers in January, reports The Cutline. After working under Pageview-bonusmeister Nick Denton, The Awl‘s founding editors Choire Sicha and Alex Balk have settled upon a profit-sharing model which “does not reward pageview hustling.”
In their big David Carr debut, Awl publisher David Cho said that they expect to bring in over a million dollars in annual revenue in the next 18 months. They’re just two years old.
You, too, can be a part of the budding, just empire! They are hiring a part-time managing editor–the first paid, non-founder position.
