There’s been something weighing on me lately, and I finally decided to do something about it. New Adult is a genre that is beginning to flourish, but the writers are a bit scattered, and the resources for those writers aren’t as great as they could be. When looking at other genres and audiences, there are a plethora of places for those writers to go for resources, help, announcements, and more.
So, I would like to introduce you to something I am excited to start: New Adult Writers Union.
NAWU will be open to anyone who writes New Adult stories. Published or unpublished, I want this to be a place for you.
What are your plans for NAWU?
I’d like to start it here on my blog, just so it’s easier to manage. If it really kicks off, then I’ll migrate it to it’s own website. For now, I want do a bimonthly post for NAWU, which features upcoming releases, resources for NA writers, features NA reviews from bloggers, giveaways, and more. I would also like to create a system for authors to connect with bloggers to promote their stories and themselves. If things really pick up, I would love to have an NA pitch party, twitter chat, awards, and more — dream big, right?
This sounds awesome, how can I join?
As aforementioned, NAWU is open to anyone who writes New Adult stories. Whether you are unpublished, or published traditionally or self published!
