How She Writes Can Build Your Writing Career

Now that you are a member of the new site, you might be wondering just how you can use it to grow your career. Well let us share a few ideas!

She Writes University

This brand new extension is gives members access to some of the most talented and experienced women in the business. Through webinars and exclusive content, this segment of the site will help you build on your existing skills, expand your platform and reach new heights with your writing.

Contributing Content

Now that it is easier to find content, you can really start using your blog to push the boundaries of your network. By creating high-quality, well-informed content that is interesting to members, you will make connections left and right.

If you are a fiction writer, discuss the trials and tribulations of your first draft. Perhaps you’ll find some beta readers. If you are an editor, give insider tips on self-editing. Those who read your post may just one day be looking for an editor and guess whose name will come to mind?

When you offer something of value for free, you become unforgettable. Contribute your expertise to the community and grow within your niche.

Develop a Network

Though writing certainly can be a solitary job, success is not a one woman show. To grow your career and hit new heights with your writing you’ll need encouragement, helpful advice, mentors, professional services and friends. Find all of those people and more within the She Writes member base.

    Like Leilani Maeva, I am also receiving the message saying my account is not activated even though I already signed in through the email verification. Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong?

  • Can I put a blog post on SheWrites that I also put on my author website blog?

  • Leilani Maeva

    Hmmm... I would like to post an article, but it keeps taking me back to the home page when I click on the write button. Also, it says my account is not activated even though I already signed in through the email verification.

    I used to, some time ago, participate regularly, but haven't in a while. The groups I enjoyed are no longer active. So far, I haven't seen anything that grabs my attention. Guess I'll keep looking.

  • Jo Barney

    I am having great difficulty signing in, and when I do, getting to the next place I want to go. Is it me? Or what? I loved She Writes when it came to me without the complications. Now I can't even log in. Jobarney8@gmailcom

    Thank you! I'm excited to get started!
