The Write Prompt
What is a Media Kit?
Think of it as a sort of “writers resume”, and picture it more like a brochure or a folder with hand outs. What is on each handout or section of the brochure will differ between authors, writers and book reviewers.
For authors, not only does the author need a bio page, covering both the short and long versions, but they also need individual sales pages for each book detailing information like the long and short blurbs and stats, it there are any.
Writers will need to include links to where their work has been published and if possible a portfolio page, where many articles are archived and available for quick viewing.
Book reviewers should have their traffic stats along with previously hosted authors and an outline of their hosting plan, letting authors know why their book blog site is a great way to gain attention for a launch or tour.
All should be available for download in a pdf or other universal file extension, making it easy for anyone to download, print (if necessary) and share via social media and email.
Do You Have A Media Kit?
If you have one, we’d love to see it! You can upload it in a post as a media file. Let other Writing and Review members check it out, get ideas and even offer feedback. You can keep it limited to Members Only or open it up to the world via settings in the Post Dashboard. Or, you can leave your post as a Save to Draft, and we’ll take care of the publishing for you.
Writing and Reviews invites authors, writers and book reviews to become a contributor. Let us show you how you can learn to write better content in less time, grow your audience and earn from your writing. All for free.
Authors, writers and book reviewers all spend time writing. The problem becomes how to earn from writing.
Writing and Reviews Contributors commit to a long-term marketing plan to grow their content and their audience. We encourage this to create the habit of writing, increasing the ability to write better content in less time. This marketing concept gives the author, writer or book reviewer the time and the foundation to build an engaged audience, increasing the opportunity for a successful book launch, book tour or book review.
What to write about today?
We provide The Write Prompt, a thought, question or a scene to inspire you. Topics can range from current events to writers angst. Contributors are welcome to pick any prompt from any date and write about it, these are not timed or dated exercises. They’re meant to bring out the creative, make you think and then let the words flow. They’re also a way of telling your story and sharing it, growing your audience in preparation for a book launch, building a portfolio, or book review.
Those first 500 words might take 45 minutes or an hour. But with practice and persistence the ability to produce quality content in less time will increase. The more content, the greater the opportunity to grow an audience and earn from writing.
We’re not looking for perfection here, although we do ask that you re-read and at least use spell-check before clicking publish – or click Save as Draft and we’ll take care of the polishing and publishing for you.
Please use the Category: Author Write Prompts when creating your post.
NOTE: While these pages are intended for Subscribers and Members Only, we will occasionally share prompts to non-members. Register now to become a Contributor and learn how to grow your audience and earn from your writing.
Members also have access to the Writing and Reviews Member Forum for assistance and support from the Writing and Reviews community.
