All Freelance Writing Launches Virtual Book Club for Freelance Writers, Authors and Aspiring Authors
PHILADELPHIA -- June 7, 2010 -- Freelance writing blog, All Freelance Writing (http://AllFreelanceWriting.com), launches a virtual book club for freelance writers, authors and aspiring authors with the first book club discussion beginning on the blog on June 21st. Each month readers will have a chance to sign up and vote on that month’s featured book, with topics alternating monthly between the freelance business and book publishing.
“All Freelance Writing has always been about helping writers achieve and surpass their writing and career goals, and supporting authors who do the same feels like a natural fit,” said All Freelance Writing Founder, Jennifer Mattern. “Sometimes the most important topics writers talk about can’t be adequately covered in a blog post or a few tweets. Having a virtual book club for freelance writers and authors offers a chance to explore those more detailed resources while maintaining a sense of community.”
All Freelance Writing readers had a chance to vote on the book club’s format and June’s featured book. The book club pick of the month is Peter Bowerman’s The Well-Fed Writer. Bowerman graciously ran a contest through the blog after being notified that his book would kick off the club discussions. A hard copy version and an e-book version of The Well-Fed Writer were awarded to the winners.
Readers chose to have to the book club discussions in traditional blog format, with a series of questions compiled from Mattern and reader submissions each month, followed by discussions in the comments. Book club discussions will remain open for one week by default, and extended one additional week if the discussion is still active at that time.
The All Freelance Writing Virtual Book Club is the latest in a long line of resources for writers, making All Freelance Writing one of the most comprehensive freelance writing resources on the Web. Other recent releases include a professional freelance writing marketplace, a writers’ market directory, free online tools custom-made for the site’s readers, a collection of exclusive free Wordpress themes available only through the blog, and more.
