The BBC coined the term “annualist” to describe “a journalistic work where protagonist endures ordeal, usually for year, then writes book about it”. Annualism would seem to be a combination of “annual” and “journalism.” Whatever you call it, it’s certainly an identifiable and popular trend, covering a gamut of topics, ranging from trendy issues (e.g., global vs. local, economics, religious fundamentalism) to perennial interests (professional sports, travel, naturalism). Check out the range of annualist (or annualist-in-spirit) titles available from JMRL, and learn from someone else’s year.
