In which we outline the things you should do on our site


Contribute to our blog

We want to get to know you! We're always accepting guest blogs, so if you have anything you wanted to share on the subjects of reading, writing, publishing, online communities, anything relevant - we'll promote it.

If you're a reader, think about your answers to these questions:

What’s your favourite book, and why?

Do you have a particular reading habit/reading space/reading routine?

What genres of books do you read most often?

What types of stories do you wish there were more of?

Are there any particular topics you’d like us to cover in our blogs?

As a reader, what do you want from a reading and writing-based community like Readership? Is there anything you want to see us doing, or anything we should do more of?

Have you had a chance to read through the material we have up on our site? If so, what’s particularly impressed you?

Is there anything that puts you off a story?

If you're a writer, think about your answers to these questions:

What is your writing process?

What are your goals?

What is your writing schedule?

How do you define success as an author?

Why do you write?

What was your inspiration for writing this book?

What authors have influenced you?

What is your favourite book?

Who is your favourite fictional character?

Does your book fit into any existing fandoms? For example, who would it please? Fans of Stephen King? Donna Tartt? George R. R. Martin?

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

What did you learn while writing this book, and how will you use those discoveries to help you write your next book?

What was your favourite scene to write?

What was the hardest scene to write?

How did you come to be a writer? Is it something you’ve wanted to be all your life?

What is the most important thing a book should have or do? And what do you want readers to find, or take away, from reading yours?

Listen to the Readership reading music

We had a song made exclusively for Readership. It's beautiful. It's ambient. It's great to wash away any distractions while you read.
