Instagram is a wonderful place for creatives. Knitters, weavers, illustrators, photographers. So many people showing their work, talking about it, showing their process, their inspirations.
But I never see many writers there. Perhaps because it’s a photo-sharing app so writers aren’t immediately drawn to it. But I think it’s a fabulous place for writers; a great place to grow your audience and to be inspired and connect with other creatives.
Want some ideas? Here are five ways you could make Instagram work for you.
