Gain Practice Writing for an Online Audience

Writing online is very different from other forms. The way you format it, the length and even your tone often vary greatly form traditionally published articles or long form writing.

Be Featured in the SW Newsletter

The She Writes newsletter is sent regularly to the thousands of members within the community.

The more specific you are about what you write, the more likely you are to draw in others from your niche. This could help you form writing groups, extrapolate blurbs and identify beta readers. Add to the fact that you’ll likely gain a few new readers from the community.

Documented Personal Journey
