1 // Ginger Reads Lainey
Lainey’s videos are super informative and encouraging, and she has some great writing tip videos. I also LOVE her monthly writing vlogs–they are simultaneously completely relatable and inspirational, and I always seem to want to write after watching one.
2 // Kim Chance
Kim has detailed videos on story craft (her how to write a villain one is a recent favourite!), grammar (which I am HOPELESS at) and dealing with rejection and querying. When I’m having a specific issue with my MS, Kim’s channel is a must watch!
3 // Meghan Jashinsky
I’ve been watching Meghan for AGESS, and she recently found an agent (Yay Meghan). I LOVE Meghan’s quarterly goal videos, her open and honest revision videos and recently, her how I got my agent video (if it doesn’t make you smile, I don’t know what will!).
4 // Claribel Ortega
Claribel is pretty much my favourite person on twitter. Her threads are always on point, and I have learnt sososo much from her (thank you Claribel!). So when I found out she had a YouTube channel, I had to watch. And it’s just as awesome. If you are interested in reading and writing diversely (which you should be) Claribel’s channel is a must watch. And if you’re interested in solid writing and publishing advice, it’s also a must watch. Basically, it’s a must watch either way!
5 // The Wordnerds
The Wordnerds are a group of YA writers who talk all about reading and writing . The great thing with this group channel is that videos are very frequent and there is a whole variety of topics covered. Their channel archive is a serious resource for any writer out there–I’ve used it so many times whilst writing, and when I was querying it was a goldmine. I love this channel because it’s fun and engaging to watch, the Wordnerds themselves seem absolutely awesome and there are so many great videos on story and writing craft!
