*Word Addicts will screen your work for quality and appropriateness before we advertise it.
All the following items will either help increase your online exposure or give you valuable experience.
The anthology: We're no longer accepting submissions for this year's anthology. But check back in early 2023 when we open back up.
Blog: We need content of various kinds. If you have expertise in the field, you may write an article about it. You may also write press releases; report on your attendance at writing, publishing, book sale events; or write on anything adjacent to the industry. Some of our best content has come from writers reaching out to famous authors and agents for a Q&A exchange. We would also love to post some book reviews.
Copy Writing: Whether or not you have much experience in this area, creating ad copy is valuable in this business. We run an ongoing social media campaign, and some of that involves creating photographic material for Pinterest and Instagram, and short snippets of text for all platforms that will urge audiences to click links. Although Word Addicts has no profit motive, we want writers and readers to visit our links for the success and enjoyment of everyone involved.
Advance Readers and Beta Readers: When a teammate has a writing project, we'll have a need for advance and beta readers. Beta readers will read a manuscript under development and provide feedback. Advance readers will read a book just prior to publication and leave honest reviews.
Social Media Admin & Content: We have a presence on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. However, we are only just forming the Word Addicts Facebook Group. We hope to great a group in which we maintain the helpful and friendly environment that matches the rural communities from which Word Addicts was born. If you would like to be involved in this, there might be a place for you.
