From 2006 to 2010, Spot-On Writers was an online editorial experiment featuring the work of various authors and journalists – some career professionals, some people new to public essay writing – from around the world. Started by journalist Chris Nolan, Writers.Spot-On was an attempt to see if what Nolan called “stand-alone journalism” – writers working outside of established news organizations – could survive on the web.

Short answer: it couldn’t.

But for a few years, the site hosted work from some pretty good writers. The Spot-On roll-call includes:

Christopher Albritton

Matthew Holt

Gopika Kaul

Deborah Klosky

Jeanne Jackson

Nicole Martinelli

PJ Rodriguez

Michael Spinney

Scott Olin Schmidt 

Kevin Weeks

All of these folks gave generously of their time and energy and a selection of their work is available on the site today.

Spot-On has since become an online ad agency serving political, public. affairs and advocacy clients looking to place ads online.
