Voices from the IngramSpark Community Share #WhyIPublish

Tuesday, December 08, 2020

At IngramSpark, our mission is to support you through your self-publishing journey. Nothing is more inspiring than writers like you sharing your stories—the reason behind your book, your "why." In May 2020, we asked the writing community to share their #WhyIPublish stories, and the response was overwhelming. In today's post, we're sharing some inspiring stories and a breakdown of the data from our #WhyIPublish survey.

#WhyIPublish: How it Started

It all started with a single post on Instagram asking authors to share #WhyIPublish.

#WhyIPublish: The Stories

The responses on social media were overwhelming. We heard from diverse writers with different backgrounds and life experiences, all with a shared goal: publishing a book. Sharing their story.





#WhyIPublish: The Survey Results

In addition to sharing #WhyIPublish stories on social media, over 1700 self-published authors (and counting!) took our #WhyIPublish survey, giving us a deeper look into the experiences and history of our IngramSpark author community.
