Five Inspiring Writers You Should Follow on Social Media

We all know writing is (almost always) a single player game, and it can be lonely hitting the keys all by yourself. But we have good news—you don’t have to feel alone in this wonderful world of social media. There are authors brimming with great advice a few clicks away! We’re here with a list of five inspiring authors that need to be in your social media feed ASAP.

Courtney Summers

Courtney is the author of many YA novels you should read, including Sadie. She’s also the creator of #BigMeEnergy, an ongoing social media challenge that asks people to celebrate their personal greatness. What’s better than self-love? NOTHING. You should follow Courtney, especially on Instagram.

Susan Dennard

We love a kick-ass newsletter, and Susan delivers one that we absolutely adore. It’s called “Misfits and Daydreamers,” and it’s packed with interesting and inspiring content for both readers—the misfits—and writers—the daydreamers. Sign up for Susan’s newsletter, and you’ll get free writing advice from a seasoned YA author. And don’t miss her blog too!

Victoria/VE Schwab

Taking readers behind the curtain of the publishing industry is our jam at Swoon Reads, and we love how candidly Victoria Schwab (who also writes as VE) talks about the publishing industry—the long path to success, the finances, and more. If you love real-talk—and lots of writing inspiration—you should follow Victoria.

Danika Stone

Our very own Danika Stone is a self-promotional wizard. No one knows how to run a sweepstakes and turn up the excitement factor like Danika. If you’re stuck in a promotional rut and need someone to show you how it’s done, follow Danika!

Sandhya Menon

The author of When Dimple Met Rishi, Sandhya should be your go-to for all things writing. We love her honest and personal Instagram stories, where she talks about her writing process and diversity in YA literature. Add her to your follow list today!
