Writer’s Resource: AWP

Association of Writers & Writing Programs

According to their own statement, AWP “provides support, advocacy, resources, and community to nearly 50,000 writers, 500 college and university creative writing programs, and 125 writers’ conferences and centers.”

Within their pages, you can find links for jobs, conferences, writing programs, and contests. A lot of the information is free. There are some things that are available only to those that have an account, which is different from being a member.

As a part in their efforts in education, they publish a magazine and provide links to articles about industry news.

May the Muse be with you,

Writer’s Resource: Poets & Writers

Poets & Writers

Poets & Writers works along the same lines as Writer’s Digest. They are all about providing tools for writers.

They publish a magazine six times a year. Articles are also available through the website. They offer a place to connect with other writers as well as listings for conferences.  Need an agent or some inspiration? There are links for those, too, among many other things.

Writers Resource: Preditors and Editors

Preditors and Editors

Preditors and Editors is most well-known for its list of legitimate literary agents and those that have a not-so-stellar reputation. But it offers much more than that.

The menu that runs along the side provides links to job search engines, publishers, writers conventions, writing software, as well as a chat and forum space.

May the Muse be with you,

Writer’s Resource: Writers Digest

Writer’s Digest

I thought long and  hard about what my first writing resource link should be.  Okay, not really.  But I wanted something that would encompass everything I wanted to do with this blog.  Writer’s Digest does the job.  They are all about educating the writer.

It’s the mother-load of information in various formats and it comes in a well-organized package.  They offer webinars and tutorials.  They have a magazine and an e-newsletter.  They have links to resources, conventions, articles, blogs, and contests.  Each link is easy to follow and they offer suggestions on what else to look at.

If you write novels, short stories, or poetry, you can’t go wrong looking here.
