April Issue: The Power of Writing Is Helping More People than Ever

Issue 103 of Barefoot Writer, February 2020

As we're staying home and practicing social distancing …

The act of writing is gaining steam as a way to cope and connect.

  • Daily journaling has therapeutic benefits. It helps us slow down and reflect on life during extraordinary times, like the present.
  • Letter writing can bring joy to loved ones, reconnect the isolated, and give glimpses into the human mind and heart.
  • Content writing can influence others in a rapid manner — the very definition of infectious. It can inform, educate, and calm. It’s also a gateway to a steady writing income.

You’re not alone if you feel frightened or lost or downright sullen about the way our lives have suddenly changed.

But no matter what you’re dealing with, writing helps. The very act of being creative reminds us of our common humanity.

Plus, during these difficult times, if you are a writer, you have options.

Read your April issue to find out how — right now — you could be a superhero to clients in their darkest hour of need.

You’ll also discover how to create a multitiered safety net for your writing career, and why it would help to pen a love letter … to your own website.

Most fascinating of all is our interview with powerhouse Terri Trespicio, who makes it clear there’s really just one thing that determines whether you sink or swim as a paid writer …
