Retreating into your writers mindset can be an isolating experience and whilst we value every authors process in producing your book, we’re here to make it easier for you! Having a community to support you is important no matter what but with Socially Shared’s network full of fantastic writers, illustrators and authors, it could be the perfect place for you.
Knowing other writers and agents for connections and inspiration
Our online bookshop showcases local women writers and authors who have published their work and through our network events you may have a chance to meet and network with these very women. Not only could this be a great opportunity to gain inspiration from fellow writers but you could also gain some handy new contacts.
Creating new audiences and interacting with readers directly
As a writer, having your book advertised on our online bookshop to the Socially Shared network as well as the general public is a great advertising opportunity for your book. You may also get the chance to meet and gain feedback from those within the network who have read your book personally or identify future beta-readers.
A great chance to connect with other business support agencies and organisations
Within the network, we have several contacts from local business support agencies and organisations that aim to support self-employed women. Our network will provide you with the exclusive chance to hear about various grants, job vacancies and creative opportunities that could benefit you. In addition to collaborating with other local women in business.
Travelling Bookshop as the perfect place to advertise and support other local authors
The Socially Shared bookshop can often be seen at our special events, providing our network with an ideal opportunity to handle books and potentially meet the local women authors. You may even be lucky enough to purchase a signed copy!
Attend Specialised events to grow your skill set as an author
Within the network, we have many successful writers who have gained years of experience, knowledge and contacts that they could be ready to share with you. Our monthly events often focus on various tools and techniques that can benefit you as a writer. With our resident blogger and area host Shelley Wilson , a successful author, award-winning blogger and established writing mentor, frequently leading these useful events, you certainly don’t want to miss out!
