    Where are some good places to get my writing read?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Alex R. Encomienda, Jul 12, 2016.

    Good afternoon brilliant writers!

    I just wanted to know where to go online to get my writing read. Now as in writing, I mean general writing Because I have places where I can put my fiction works.

    I love to also write reviews, articles on certain subject matters and poetry.

    I was earlier introduced to Wordpress, DeviantArt and Smashwords and those sites really work quite nice for me but is there anything else where I can show more people? Perhaps I can share my work from these on another site?

    I have Facebook though, where I share most of my works from the other sites (Also where you are all welcome to contact me through) and I have a LinkedIn account but I hardly know how to use that, haha.

    Do any of you know where I can spread my imaginations? I'm very curious! And thank you!

    I think you're probably going to want to focus in a little - right now it seems like you're spread all over.

    I'd ask myself: What is the goal of my writing? (attention from a broad following, intelligent engagement and discussion, honing writing skills - all totally valid, but not necessarily going to be found at the same place)

    And then, once I had that figured out, I'd try to find communities where other people were getting the sort of response I was looking for. I'd also ask myself what I was willing to compromise in order to get what I really needed. (ie. If I want attention from a broad following I might not be able to get intelligent discussion, etc.)

    In my opinion, submit your work to paying markets. You get exposure, you get paid, and you build your writing resume. It's hard work, but it's worth it.

    Check out Duotrope and Poets&Writers for a list of markets. Duotrope charges $50 a year, but P&W is free.
