Gatekeepers

"People whose role in a creative ecosystem give them the power to decide whether or not particular creative acts or products are placed into channels of transmission or creative outlets by which they can become visible to relevant audiences. In the literary world, for example, editors, publishers, and owners of bookstores function as gatekeepers" (Harrington 1999). In the system approach, gatekeepers are people "who have the right to add memes to a domain" (Csikszentmihalyi 1999: 324) and who collectively constitute the field.
