Many wonderful people, notably Rosebud Ben-Oni, Tara Skurtu, Rob Mclennan, and Headline Poetry and Press, have been providing space and resources for writers who have had chances to promote their book cancelled recently due to the Coronavirus. I commend their efforts and am happy to be part of such a supportive community.
I'd like to start a blog that features writers writing about their work. If you were affected by the cancelling of events/anything else due to the Coronavirus, please feel free to participate (if you are promoting a book, the book can be any genre and does not have had to be published in 2019/2020).
I have written 5 questions below. If you would like to be featured on the blog, please email me answers to the questions. Depending on how many people respond, I will feature a writer every day or so on the blog, as well as tweet the feature. Please use this space to promote yourself as much as possible.
I'm open to suggestions on how to improve the questions and anything else. Please just shoot me an email if you have any.
My email can be found in the site's footer or by clicking on the red mailbox in the header.
I'm excited to hear more about your work!
