Abstract

W. T. Stead’s contribution to the development of reader engagement in the New Journalism was extensive and innovative. In this essay, I argue that Stead’s participatory reader networks in the Link and the Review of Reviews were the culmination of Stead’s career-long interest in media-based community engagement projects. Rather than viewing Stead’s journalism through the narrow lens of a single publication or journalistic campaign, I consider how his participatory reader networks were refined and shaped over the course of many years and within the pages of multiple periodicals.
