July 2022 IWSG Posting

Insecure Writer’s Support Group—A database resource site and support group for writers and authors. Featuring weekly guests and tips, a monthly blogfest gathering, a Facebook group, a book club, and thousands of links–all to benefit writers! 

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer help and guidance. It’s a safe-haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer—aim for a dozen new people each time—and return comments. This group is all about connecting!
Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post. And please be sure your avatar links back to your blog!  
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.  

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

July 6 question - If you could live in any book world, which one would you choose?

Thanks to our awesome co-hosts for this month:
Don't forget about the IWSG Book Club featuring IWSG writers! 
The Insecure Writer's Support group is expanding!
The group has a new feature: In-Person Writing Groups!

Here's more information: 

Applicants pay a $5.00 one-time fee to use the IWSG logo ad are sent the following email along with the IWSG In-Person Group badge: 

Welcome to the IWSG In-Person Group club!

We have attached the badge for display online and in person.

In representing the IWSG, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

* Adhere to our mission statement –  
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a website media business with affiliates to enhance our service to visitors. We are a home for writers in all stages, from unpublished to bestsellers. Our goal is to offer assistance and guidance. We want to help writers overcome their insecurities, and by offering encouragement we are creating a community of support.

* Conduct the group in a positive manner, encouraging growth and inclusion for all. Writers should be treated equally and fairly no matter who they are or what genre they write.

* Encourage members to become part of the IWSG at some level – blogging, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Your group will be listed on the IWSG In-Person Groups page with your name as leader and your location.

Please keep us up to date on your progress, growth, and member accomplishments/events so that we might celebrate with you!
