Writing may be a solitary profession, but it is also one that relies on a strong sense of community. The Write Crowd offers practical tips and examples of how writers of all genres and experience levels contribute to the sustainability of the literary community, the success of others, and to their own well-rounded writing life. Through interviews and examples of established writers and community members, readers are encouraged to immerse themselves fully in the literary world and the community-at-large by engaging with literary journals, reading series and public workshops, advocacy and education programs, and more. In contemporary publishing, the writer is expected to contribute outside of her own writing projects. Editors and publishers hope to see their writers active in the community, and the public benefits from a more personal interaction with authors. Yet the writer must balance time and resources between deadlines, day jobs, and other commitments. The Write Crowd demonstrates how writers may engage with peers and readers, and have a positive effect on the greater community, without sacrificing writing time.

Review:

"The Write Crowd by Lori A. May is a great little book on literary citizenship ... May's advice throughout the book fits writers (and readers) of all types-big city or rural ... those with a knack or willingness to work with organizations-established or built from the ground up-or introverts who's day job drains them of energy, and mingling with more people is the last thing they can handle." --Cheryl Russell, Why The Writing Works

"A great book for all avid readers and writers." --Corrine Rodrigues, Write Tribe

..". for those of us not in school, Lori A. May has created an easy-to-use handbook. Highly recommended." --The Alchemist Kitchen

"If there can be a 'How-to Guide' for getting involved in a literary community and living an authentic writing life, this is an inspiring must-read." --Elisa Brand, Minotaur's Spotlight

"The Write Crowd is a useful resource for those looking for a place in the writing community, whether at the local or national level ... I highly recommend this book for writers as a resource to connect to their work to their community." -MJ Reads

"[The Write Crowd] offers practical tips on how to fit in to the literary community ... because all authors - published, self-published, novice and expert - need to know how to navigate the world of other writers and readers." -The Book Analyst
