Writers are everywhere in the multipotentialite community. It makes sense, when you think about it. Multipotentialites have a lot of ideas—and a lot of creativity with which to express them!
Our aspirations in writing vary, of course. Some multipods are (or wish to be) journalists or freelancers. Others write novels, short stories or poetry… Some do it for fun, others write as part of their work and some are both professional and casual writers—depending on the day and the project. There are so many forms and genres of writing, that it’s a natural field for many multipotentialites.
Whatever your writing goals are, I promise you will love today’s interview.
I recently sat down with award-winning writers and multipotentialites, Kristin Wong and Alex Webb, who have written for such publications as The New York Times and National Geographic. They are also the creators and co-instructors of the courses, Come Write with Us and Pitches That Work.
In this conversation, we talk about:
- How to avoid getting “niched in” to a particular topic.
- Why having multiple interests can make your writing richer.
- How to pitch weird ideas to editors.
- The two “personality types” that can have a hard time pitching.
- How to stay inspired and make the creativity flow more easily.
I really enjoyed our conversation and I think you will, too:
Connect with Kristin at KristinWong.com and Alex at alxndrwbb.com. And here’s the article Alex pitched to the New York Times, that we discussed in the interview.
You can pick up Kristin and Alex’ fantastic course, Pitches That Work (which is normally sold for $99), along with 12 other hand-picked courses, ebooks and workshops for $97 during this year’s Multi-Passionate Must-Haves from September 8-11, 2021.
Mark your calendar for Sept 8 because we’re only doing this once and three days goes by fast. 🙂
