You can’t judge a book by its cover, but a compelling presentation makes for a terrific start to bringing readers into your fold.
First Impressions Matter
Readers judge how deep they want to dive into a work by the title and first paragraph. Close behind is the identity of the author behind the words. That’s where WriterShelf helps. WriterShelf lets you present your writing in a rich framework to transport your readers where you want them to go.
It Starts with a Name
Every pen name in WriterShelf needs to be unique, but that’s about it. As a writer you have freedom to pick the name that captures the essence of your intent and points readers in direction you want to take them.
So maybe Felicity2925 is the perfect name for a series of poems on childhood memories. But you have choices.
A Picture and Tagline to Match
Standing beside your pen name are a pen name icon and a public description. The picture gives readers a visual reference for the identity of your pen name while the description serves as a tagline. Both instantly communicate your purpose and easily sink into your reader’s minds.
Complete your Calling Card
At the foot of your articles readers will find an “About the Writer” section where you can present a bio for your pen name. The block is free format so you can include as much or as little as you like, including media and links.
Taken together, your pen name, icon, tagline and author bio let you surround your WriterShelf identity with meaning to welcome readers into your world.
WriterShelf is a privacy-oriented platform that lets you write using pen names.
Everyone has a story to tell. WriterShelf gives you the freedom to be yourself.
