Hi Write Brilliant friends,

We get this question a lot: How do I get a good headshot?

As a writer, your photo shows up everywhere– your website, your book cover, event brochures, not to mention, all your social media channels. That photo is an invitation into your brand and can even give people a glimpse of your writing voice.

We’ve all seen examples of what not to do. But how do you avoid those all-to-common mishaps? 

I filmed this quick video for you to give you some actionable tips when it comes to capturing that picture-perfect shot.

Write soon,
Margaret

Meet our friend, Laura. Laura is a worship leader, pastor, mom, and author. Before being introduced to Write Brilliant, Laura had one self-published study, but still didn’t consider herself a writer.

Now, Laura has published two Bible studies with Moody Publishers and continues to transform lives through her story.

We asked Laura to pop over and share some of her advice for those who struggle to call themselves writers. Read More

What do you feel when you hear the word “marketing”?

Many writers tend to get fidgety or want to hide in the corner in the fetal position. I’ve seen it time and again.

When it comes to marketing, and especially digital or online marketing, many people I know would love to pay someone to make it go away. Yet when it comes to building an audience and impacting people with the message you’ve been entrusted with…

You probably don’t have the five-to-six-to-seven figures to make it all go away. And even if you did, no one can be you online or with your audience. Your people want you. Your insights. Your wisdom. Your funnies. Your photos.

I started to explore why this this whole idea of online marketing scares writers and discovered there’s a huge gap in understanding of how digital marketing fits into building a personal platform for writing and publishing.

Online marketing for writers is simply engaging with your audience. Starting conversations. Sharing ideas. Letting people in on your life and discoveries.

Wow. It suddenly became less scary didn’t it?

Don’t overthink it. Online marketing is a powerful tool that allows you to learn from your audience as they learn from you. In return, it builds your platform, naturally.

Here are 3 principles to grow the audience of your dreams as a writer: Read More

Heather has a lot of gifts– one of which I want you to glean from today. In this video, I ask Heather her tips on how to write a study on an entire book of the Bible–while sticking to a theme.
