I've been working as an academic editor for 12 years at a university. I also edit an economics/business journal and do a few books for professors every year. I'm into writing and especially into supporting writers and encouraging them. I am thinking about starting up a web site that will feature short stories and articles about the city I live in (Istanbul), in English. The idea would be to showcase contemporary Turkish short story writers, help them edit their stories and then publish them online. There is very little literature available about Turkey besides the usual history books, and in Turkey writers have very little chance to showcase their work.
I want to combine my language skills (I am fluent in Turkish), my editing experience and my academic background background (BA, MA in history) and publish this literary review.
My question is, where to start? Is this something from which I might be able to generate income one day or should I look at it as a hobby only?
I should add that I am a web master with two sites at work, one for an architecture office, and then several blogs for work and play. I enjoy web design and content writing.
I have never discussed this with anyone. It's a secret little fantasy. But I think this is an appropriate place to get some feedback.
