I love the custom content that has emerged on YouTube, especially those that are aimed at helping writers improve their craft or aimed at connecting readers. Today, I’m sharing five of my favorite YouTube Channels. I hope you will check them out because they have a lot to offer, plus they are entertaining!
JustWrite is one of my favorites when it comes to a channel that deals with writing. In particular, I enjoy how it looks to movies to provide writing lessons. I loved his take on “The Hobbit” films as he touches on everything that bugged me about the movies. However, I think my favorite video at the moment is “What Writers Should Learn From Wonder Woman.”
The Closer Look is very similar to JustWrite — it also looks at movies to provide detailed examples of good storytelling. I’ve enjoyed several of their videos, from “How to Fix Suicide Squad” and “Why Batman vs. Superman Sucked” to “King Arthur — How to Fail Fantasy.” One of my favorites is “Logan — The Death Of A Genre.”
Jenna Moreci is an author with her own YouTube channel that puts out entertaining vids about writing, and it is wildly popular. One of my favorites is posted below.
Ellen Brock, a freelance editor, also has a very good channel that is worth checking out. She provides writing tips and advice from the perspective of an editor, which a lot of writers need to hear.
My final one for this list is BooksandLala, which is a reader’s channel. Writers can learn a lot from this book review channel while also staying up to date on what is new in the market. You can also learn how to organize your bookshelves.
That’s it for now! I will try to do another list because I still have more channels that I like, and I’m constantly finding more! Do you have any channels that you’d like to share? I’d love to see them.
