As some of you will know, I have been looking at different ways to market my fiction work. I wrote about the variety of options open to writers.
Three solutions, to the curveball Medium, threw us last week.medium.com
I strongly believe that fiction and poetry are slowly being made redundant on Medium. I don’t say this as a bad thing, as stated before, this is Medium’s prerogative to change things.
My Heart is With Fiction Writing.
I love writing fiction, it is the genre that started me writing. In my heart, I am a fiction writer who shares her wisdom, through other non-fiction articles.
My love of fiction and poetry has made me determined to change my output. Next year my fiction writing will be as important as publishing on Medium.
Like many poets, I have seen my income plummet. Like many poets, I am determined to keep writing. To increase the exposure of poets across all platforms, I started a poetry newsletter.
Once a week, I feature a different poet and show you the amazing work they offer. All popped through your email on a Sunday. What can be better than a slow Sunday, reading poetry?
The Added Extra
As well as a poetry newsletter, I am also going to send a weekly short story for you all to enjoy. The poetry newsletter will be free, my fiction will be subscription-based, from January.
As a special thank you to everyone who signs up. I am going to draw five names at random on New Year’s Eve. These five will be gifted a lifetime free membership.
My Fiction Has a Home
I’m hoping with this change, I can give my fiction a real home and allow people to read it. Also, I am going to be entering competitions and submitting to other magazines.
As I stated in the post above it is the responsibility of the writer to adapt and change. These are the changes I am making in the New Year.
What changes are you going to make?
