#WritersRead: Call for Guest Posts
#WritersRead Call for Guest Posts
I need you!
In the midst of this crazy world, having a good book to read helps me face the day.
(Well, so does my family and writing and the beautiful flowers. But still: I could not live without books.)
I created the #WritersRead hashtag many years ago so that reading writers could share the books that inspired them to write. Nearly every Friday, I feature guest bloggers writing about their favorite books for #writersread. Posts generally have three sections.
Section One: Book Recommendation
*An author’s favorite book in a genre (e.g., fantasy or mystery)
*A book that shaped an author’s writing
*A book that inspired a writer during a difficult time.
*A reflection on a writing book that inspired the writer
*A reflection on any book that encouraged a writer to write
Section Two: Writing Tip
What writing tip would you like to offer to readers? The tip usually has to do with the book you are recommending, though it might have to do with the type of book you write or the situation in the world right now.
Section Three: Bio
Take a moment to tell readers about you, your most recent book, and why you write. Include links to your website and social media presence.
Are you an author or blogger with a passion for reading? Send me your idea along with the title of the book you will be recommending, your bio, and a link to your website or blog. If you plan to do a book giveaway, please also include the title of the book you will give (along with the format). See guidelines below for length and style of posts.
