There may be some overlap with a site I mentioned a while ago, Preditors and Editors, but Writer Beware covers a wide range of topics, from publishing scams, advise on the realistic expectations of publication, and resources for legal action.
Writers.Com is another online writing community, not to be confused with last weeks Writing.Com.
Writers.Com offers online courses and a system to join a writing group. Everything is online so there are no set meeting times, it works around your schedule. It also offers links to tips and resources on publishing and grammar.
Crab Orchard Review is a twice yearly print publication from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
They have specific rules for each release. The Summer/Fall issue is topic specific, submissions are accepted through snail mail only from October 1 through November 10. The Winter/Spring issue prints the winners of their contests and accepts submissions online.
Crab Orchard review asks for nine months response time, though most will hear back in one to five months.
They accept simultaneous submissions, but not multiple.
Crab Orchard Review pays twenty-five dollars per published magazine page, two copies of that issue and a years subscription. Payment for contest winners is explained in the contest rules.
“I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success . . . Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.” – Nikola Tesla
Writing.Com is an online community for writers. Joining is free, though there are levels that are available to paying members only. I had to do some poking around to find what Writing.Com offers its members. This includes a place to store and organize your writing, forums to meet and discuss with other writers, and feedback on your writing, among other things. A brief explanation of the different aspects of the site can be found here.
