Company/Business: “From A Writer’s POV Online Magazine”
Year Founded: July 2007
Tell us about your business: From A Writer’s POV is an online magazine for writers, authors and business owners. We spend a great deal of time spotlighting those who are writers, authors and business owners. Our magazine is monthly and we spotlight people who have just published a book, who are writers and love to showcase their work, business owners that offer a literary service and those that have events that cater to authors, writers and business owners.
We have two networks, Poetry Websites, Events Websites and Blogs. I write a daily blog called The POV Lounge that gives my advice and tips on writing, business and being an author.
From A Writer’s POV is the type of magazine that wants to give authors, writers and business owners a starting point in their career.
What inspired you to start your business: I was just starting out with my first book and was looking for a place like my magazine that catered to writers and authors, that wasn’t looking for a bunch of money to spotlight me. I couldn’t find it. So I started my own magazine.
Share one business goal: For From A Writer’s POV to become a publishing house and a print magazine to be sold in many stores.
What would you say contributes to your success: Seeing certain celebrities; watching them work and seeing what they do to get to where they are like Tyler Perry and Kimora Lee Simmons.
We have tons of events going on right now. We have a Publisher’s Conference. We are allowing publisher’s to speak at our online conference to advertise their business as well as find potential clients. This event is on February 23rd, 24th & 25th. From A Writer’s POV has also partnered with Alba Henderson. She is the owner of i-Virutal Assists. We are hosting a Poetry Author Tour in April.
