Profiles in Encouragement 001 – Lisa Vihos, Ekta Garg, Larry F. Sommers
March 27, 2020

In a time of self-isolation, quarantine, and social distancing, writers Lisa Vihos, Ekta Garg, and Larry F. Sommers have the courage to share their tales of encouragement with the global writing community.

Now more than ever, it’s among our goals to foster a sense of community. That’s why the Writescast Network is asking the writing community to share its stories of writerly success, a writing-related victory over adversity, or its member’s journeys to becoming writers.

So how does it work?

  1. Record a voice memo on your phone that meets the criteria above. These stories can be a maximum of five minutes in length.
  2. Send this voice memo to writescast [at] gmail [dot] com.
  3. Your story is shared with the writing community on our Writescast Network feed.

Remember, this is about encouraging and inspiring others. The best stories will be those that capture the spirit of the word community. Think along the lines of “If I can do this, so can you” or “we’re all in this together.”

Please note we cannot consider stories longer than five minutes in duration.

We look forward to hearing from you. Write on, write well, and be sure to subscribe and return to this page often for updates about programming for this new endeavor.
