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:

  1. 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.
  2. American Society of Journalists and Authors – the nation’s leading organization of independent nonfiction writers.
  3. 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.
  4. National Writers Union – the union for freelance writers working in US markets.
  5. Poets and Writers, Inc. – the primary source of information, support, and guidance for creative writers, and the publisher of Poets & Writers Magazine.
  6. 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.
