The Sunday Spotlight on Two Drops of Ink

Sunday Spotlight

It’s Sunday and time for Sunday Spotlight. Each Sunday we will spotlight a published contributor from our list. The idea is to reintroduce these wonderful and talented writers/authors to our audience, especially new followers that may not have noticed their writings here on the site, and to give them a boost in exposure. 

Having Rachel come on board as a published contributor to the site has been a real asset for our readers. As a literary blog, we hope to cover as many genres as possible. That said, our reader poll recently revealed that our readers loved writing advice and memoir more than anything we do here at Two Drops of Ink.

Rachel is a prolific writer, but her specialty is in the newsroom. She has contributed two posts thus far and both touch on the duties and writing style of a reporter. The first post, The Reporter Life, is a mixed genre of memoir and writing advice for those seeking to make their careers in the newsrooms of today. The second, The Reporter Life: Writing a Press Release, got a huge number of views as many writers have no clue how to write a good press release.

We hope you’ll take the time to check out Rachel’s sites, her blog, and her publications. We hope that you will become a fan of Rachell in the same way that we have.

Past Sunday Spotlight posts

At Two Drops of Ink, we proudly collaborate with other writers. Most bloggers work hard to brand themselves and push their own sites, and that’s fine; however, here at Two Drops of Ink, we have created a unique and powerful epicenter for collaborative writing. Along with our writing team and the blogs we post, we accept submissions of all genres (see our submissions guidelines). This is a huge win-win for our literary blog and for writers that are either well established and are looking to expand their audience, or relatively new writers looking for exposure. We dedicate this page to those writers, and their works, that were good enough to publish on our blog. Congrats to them. Please take a moment to scroll down through the list and enjoy and share their writing.
