Here are Instagram feed ideas and post ideas for writers, authors and poets.
I hope they give you inspiration for your own beautiful account.
Let’s get straight into it.
Feed idea #1. Excerpts only
The first idea is to only share excerpts of books or poems.
If you want to “brand” your account, then choose a background color and font that you love.
Like @iamjtorres_ does.
Feed idea #3. Tiles
The idea is to alternate between 2 types of posts.
You can alternate between:
- Photo and quotes
- Reels and static posts
- Anything that makes sense to you and your brand
Feed idea #4. Whiteboard
Doodle on a white background.
Your entire feed will look like a creative whiteboard.
Feed idea #5. Lifestyle
Share your written work, and bits and pieces of your life too.
People love to see behind the scenes and the life of an author.
Feed idea #6. Paper
Make your entire feed look like paper.
Write notes, quotes and excerpts on a paper background.
Feed idea #8. Art
Want your words to have a visual?
Share your own drawings or art. Or find a beautiful photo, painting or sketch that represents the feeling or characters of your book.
Feed idea #9. Bookstagram lover with writing sprinkled
Love talking about other people’s books too?
Why not share book reviews like @kaci.writes, amongst your own writing?
You will create a beautiful book loving atmosphere.
Feed idea #10. Touring
Share tour dates, sneak peeks and past tour experiences.
Share them as Reels for example, like @alex does.
Feed idea #11. Handwritten notes and quotes
Write on paper your quotes, ideas, prompts or questions,
It makes your feed look even more personal.
Feed idea #12. Notebook
Want to give your feed a “theme”?
One way is by taking the same kind of pictures, using the same props. For example, a notebook.
Feed idea #13. Journal sneak peeks
Love to write on paper or journal?
Share sneak peeks of your work.
It feels like we enter your world.
