Encore Career Writers
The aging population are rapidly growing in numbers due to the post-war ‘baby boom’ in the late 1940s and 1950s. This group is looking for new lifestyle opportunities in their retirement. Many are looking for more than retirement. They wish to remain engaged and vital to society. As a result ‘Encore Career’ is finding its way into the vocabulary. Many are choosing writing, which has led to the strong growth in two categories of writers. There are legacy writers (writing a one-off book about their family tree or life) and encore career writers (taking up a career as a writer instead of retiring). Our blog is dedicated to this new category of emerging writers.
