Finish the summer on high note by joining in a writing challenge on Wealthy Web Writer.

The challenge? To write a review of book that your fellow Wealthy Web Writer members will find useful. You can find the details for the Challenge here.

In this Challenge Kick Off event, Heather Robson will  give you a quick tutorial in how to write a great book review, including:

  • how to find analogies that will resonate for your reader
  • making choices about what to include and what to leave out
  • why topically adjacent books sometimes result in the best reviews
  • and more.

Come away from this event with plenty of inspiration and motivation to crack open a book and to sharpen your pencils… and the challenge winner will receive a paid byline here on Wealthy Web Writer

Enjoy the Playback

  • A few books you might consider for our Book Challenge:
    Everybody Writes by Ann Handley
    Anything by Seth Godin (Anything is not the title… Seth has a number of worthwhile books)
    How to Write Seductive Web Copy by Henneke Duistermaat
    The Copywriter’s Handbook by Bob Bly
    The Well Fed Writer by Peter Bowerman
    On Writing by Stephen King
    Made to Stick by Chip Heath and Dan Heath

    This is not an exhaustive list… and you could also have fun reviewing a pop psychology or self help book and connecting it to web writing or reviewing a memoir and connecting it to web writing.

  • Hi Heather, This was heavy duty but I’m thinking I’d like to give it a try. I have 2 of the books you mentioned and either haven’t read or I need to reread them. I’m not a great reader but have entered that reading world more in the last 7 or 8 years. I realize the value of it. I’ll see you on October 2nd should I succeed in this adventure! Have a great day!

  • Hi Heather,

    Quick question – can we submit more than one entry? Or are members limited to just one entry?

    Like, for example, if I can’t pick between two books and I want to write a book review for both of them… would you accept both entries or would doing that somehow disqualify me from the challenge?

    Thanks in advance for responding!

    • Hi Lynelle,

      Great question. And one I wish I had thought of. I’m going to limit it to one entry per member… but, you are always welcome to submit ideas to me for the site, including book reviews 🙂

      • Got this, Heather!

        I was initially choosing between 3 books, but I recently thought of a solid idea for one of them.

        So I’ll go with that. 🙂

        Thank you for your answer and I’m excited to submit my entry!

        All my best,
        Lynelle
