#Indulgeinwriting. Welcome.

 

Head shot 1 Feb 2018 copy for gravatar

Welcome to #Indulgeinwriting founded by Sharon Thompson.

This is an exclusive network of writers.

Members are welcome to join now for the exciting, new 2019 programme.

I am asked, ‘How did you start to write? How did you get published? What do I need to do to get my book finished? Can I learn more about the industry and get time for my writing?’

Are these questions you would ask me?

If they are, then let me tell you, ‘A quick cuppa, will not tell you all there is to know. Please join my online writing group.’

What is #Indulgeinwriting all about?

  • There are three membership levels in #Indulgeinwriting 2019, with a planned calendar of 30+ online, interactive, recorded events with writing experts and free access to supportive, online members’ forums.

  • Writers at all stages are welcome to the group. Listen, learn and let yourself write with us.

There will also be a few surprises for our members. If there’s a topic members would like help with or see covered, I encourage people to mention this. #Indulgeinwriting will evolve.

I am on the forums everyday. Experts will also stay on the group forums.

This is a new group, that is growing steadily and we would love for you to be part of this new initiative.

An example of a recorded interview is with Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin, who is founder of The Inkwell Group, a publishing consultancy and also of the hugely popular national writing resources website, Writing.ie. Vanessa is also Ireland’s leading literary scout who has assisted many award winning authors and best-selling authors to publication.

This showcases some of the content that #Indulgeinwriting members will have exclusive assess to. 

Vanessa is also #1 Best-selling author under her pseudonym Sam Blake. The third in her trilogy is ‘No Turning Back’.

Find Vanessa’s video interview on #Indulgeinwriting on you-tube too.

I also use Crowdcast which allows for comments and questions LIVE and is recorded for playback as many times as you like.

The daily interaction on the forum has;

  • feedback on work and queries answered.
  • established writers, literary agents/scouts and other industry experts are members.
