October Social Media Content Ideas for Writers

With #NaNoWriMo around the corner, it’s a good idea to get in a writing groove. Why not start out easy with some short, but impactful, copy to build your writing community and support system on social media? Here are a few topics that you should add to your content calendar for October.

October 5th – World Teacher Day

What an excellent opportunity to share stories of the teachers that inspired you to write or sparked your love for books.

October 6th – National Poetry Day

Prepare for a haiku flooding on Twitter.

October 16th – Dictionary Day

Share your favorite word or a word that always trips you up when spelling it. Screw you, conscience.

October 31st – Halloween

Do you have a favorite thriller novel to share? Are you writing a scary, nail-biter book you can plug? Or maybe you can just post a pic of you writing in your Halloween custom for shits and giggles.

Evergreen Content

  • #1LineWed – A fun weekly hashtag that allows you share a line from your book that you’re especially proud of. This is a great way to promote your book or hype your current work in progress.

I hope this helps to round out your social media calendar for October!
