Discover more from Better Writing with Blake Atwood
New bonuses await you
I've enabled referral bonuses when you share this Substack with your writer friends
NOTE: If you’ve received a duplicate of this email, I sincerely apologize. I unpublished the first version because I didn’t see that it had been emailed this morning. It’s just like they say: there’s no better way to say thanks to your list than by spamming them. Truly sorry!
Thank you for reading my newsletter.
The real newsletter goes out every Wednesday morning, but I have 3 announcements I couldn’t wait to share.
I’m excited about leaning more into this newsletter and helping more writers get better at this craft that can be so elusive.
That’s one reason I’ve recently enabled referral bonuses. Now you can benefit by simply sharing this Substack with your writer friends.
I hope you find the bonuses worthwhile. (If not, I’d be glad to hear further suggestions.)
But first, two fun announcements:
Please join our (recently enabled) chats. I plan to start a chat the day after releasing a new article to see what you all may think and to learn from you as well. I hope it’s a more community-oriented way to get to know each other than just leaving a comment on an article. Any new chats will be here.
If you’re in DFW or like to travel for excellent writers conferences, DFWCon is coming up on Oct. 7-8 in Hurst, TX.I’ll be teaching two classes:
How to Craft a Compelling Nonfiction Book Proposal
Atomic Habits for Nonfiction Authors: The Small Changes You Need to Make in Your Nonfiction Writing and Marketing to See Compounding Results
The full class schedule should be released in the next few weeks, and I’ll share more about the conference then.
On to the bonuses!

Did I say yes to the invitation to teach because my ticket will be comped and Dave Eggers and Evangeline Lily are the keynote speakers? Yes, yes I did.
