There are so many ways to support creatives other than just buying their work. As a full-time writer, I tend diversify to maintain my income and grow my audience. In fact, you can find links to my full body of work here. Of course, buying our work is important, but it’s not the only way to shop small or support small business.
So… what are some other ways to support writers?
Buy them a virtual coffee.
“Love” or “wow” posts and leave comments.
Leave a tip.
Sign up for their email newsletters.
Share on social media — one click, no cost!
Write a review (social media or website).
For authors, leave reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads.
Read their work.
Creatives are struggling this year, and there’s no better gift you can give them than to support their work — even if all you can afford to do is click “share”.
