Develop a Slogan for Yourself as a Writer

On his blog today, Robert Brewer offers some great advice. He challenges writers to develop a slogan. This helps a writer develop focus. It’s also very useful for stationery, invoices, business cards and websites. Mine is “Writing for Children, and the Wonderful People Who Help Them Learn.”

The slogan includes my fiction, but also my poetry, nonfiction, and my works for the educational market. It does not include editing, illustrating, or works for adults.

Click below for expert information about developing your own slogan.
