I'd like to see it become more of a meritocracy. I think too many great voices are suppressed because the publishing industry wields too much power (and they often choose wrong). If everyone in the writing community purchased and reviewed 10 independent books a year, I think we'd discover a lot of quality work. If "influencers" working at home are able to support themselves on TikToc and YouTube, we should be able to create a better system of support for writers.
