CL contributors: What’s stopping you from fulfilling your publishing goals?
CommuterLit has a dilemma — or an opportunity. What should we post on Fridays? In between our paid PREVIEW FRIDAY promotions, we usually post an older archived story or poem under the banner RERUN FRIDAY.
But is that the best use of the Friday spot for CommuterLit contributors? And since we can’t pay our contributors (we simply don’t have the money to do so), we’re all about being your cheerleaders and finding useful ways of promoting your writing.
A little while back, since I know how difficult it is to get reviews for books, I had thought to launch REVIEW FRIDAY—in which I’d pair up contributors to review each others’ books (and post the reviews on Friday). However, the response was underwhelming.
Other ideas I have are:
– FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT: Q & A with a contributor
– FRIDAY GUEST: Publishing professional guest blogger
– FRIDAY NEWS: Highlighting Contributors’ publishing & awards news and upcoming events.
Or should we try again for REVIEW FRIDAY in some other format? Or maybe one of you has another idea. I’d love to hear from you. Please tell us what you think we should post on Fridays to help you fulfill your publishing goals.
Email the editor with your ideas and comments.
