Amazon launches a weekly literary journal for Kindle, starting at $9.99/year

Amazon (s AMZN) on Wednesday launched “a literary journal for the digital age,” Day One (not to be confused with the journaling app of the same name), which will publish the work of one writer and one poet each week. An annual subscription will normally be $19.99 but is $9.99 for “a limited time.” Issues will be delivered automatically to your Kindle or Kindle app and “each issue of Day One includes a letter from the editor, as well as occasional bonus content such as playlists, illustrations, or brief interviews with the authors.”

This looks to be a way to introduce debut authors: The first authors and poets listed are those who’ve never published books before.
