As a primer for my upcoming workshop for authors, I’ll be writing a series of blog posts geared toward the wordsmiths among us. To start things off, here’s a list of helpful online writing resources:
- Writer’s Digest – the No. 1 magazine for writers, celebrating the writing life and what it means to be a writer in today’s publishing environment.
- American Society of Journalists and Authors – the nation’s leading organization of independent nonfiction writers.
- The Author’s Guild – the nation’s leading advocate for writers’ interests in effective copyright protection, fair contracts and free expression since it was founded as the Authors League of America in 1912.
- National Writers Union – the union for freelance writers working in US markets.
- Poets and Writers, Inc. – the primary source of information, support, and guidance for creative writers, and the publisher of Poets & Writers Magazine.
- Author’s Coaching Network – online social network for authors.
And I’ll finish with a nod to my favorite author, Indianapolis-native Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., who left us too soon in 2007. So it goes.
