Every week thanetwriters.com publishes three essays aimed at supporting writers, sharing insights, and opening avenues for discussion.

The type of essay we are looking for is extremely hard to pinpoint as the art of writing covers such a broad spectrum. You could be a poet wanting to share what you believe makes a great poem. You might be a successful author wishing to share your knowledge of publishing, or a new writer wanting to share how you make time to write while juggling family life and work. You could be a screenwriter or an editor, a proof reader or a ghost writer, a cover designer or an illustrator of picture books. If you have knowledge of anything to do with writing and would like to share your experience, knowledge, learnings, insights, or opinions with others, please write us an essay and submit it to Thanet Writers.

Here are a few pointers which we feel make an essay successful:

It should be truthful. You don’t need to put on a persona of confidence in order to offer fellow writers guidance or an insight into your particular field of experience. Instead, your words should come from a very open and honest place.

It should be genuine in its want of helping others.

It should be as informative as you can make it. You can use examples to back up your opinion, where applicable, of what you deem to be successful and unsuccessful writing.

You should offer your own opinion but be open-minded to the varying beliefs and views of others.

It doesn’t need to be unique; it doesn’t matter if what you want to write has been done many times before, but what does matter is that you put yourself into it, and therefore put your own unique spin on the information.
