Invest in Your Writing Career with See Jane Write

This week on The Localist, Javacia Harris Bowser, creator of writing collective See Jane Write, joins Carrie to talk about writing in the time of COVID, a membership opportunity with See Jane Write, and some major obstacles Javacia has faced this year. Javacia tells us more about the perks of membership, and how she took See Jane Write from a local brand to an online international community. Javacia and Carrie break down the business of being a writer: how to get paid, how to market yourself, how to gain supporters rather than just followers, and how the pandemic has affected Javacia’s workload (you might be surprised by her answer!). Javacia tells us about her cancer diagnosis earlier this year and how that has affected her writing, her business, and how she decides what to share about her journey. Javacia and Carrie wrap up with what you can expect out of the Collective membership, and a few key takeaways.
