Writing Resources November 15, 2010

The Internet offers so much more free writing instruction and advice than what was available when I launched my career. It’s easy to get sidetracked by always reading and learning instead of writing and applying, but I’ve listed below some sites I’ve found helpful. Many offer free e-letters or blogs anyone can subscribe to. I’ve leaned more heavily toward my own interest, children’s writing, but other areas of specialty offer just as much information, if not more.

www.editorialanonymous.blogspot.com

www.fundsforwriters.com

www.guidetoliteraryagents.com

www.kidmagwriters.com

http://www.kidlitosphere.org/authors/

http://pred-ed.com/

www.publishersweekly.com

www.underdown.org

www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php

www.write4kids.com (www.cbiclubhouse.com)

www.writersdigest.com

www.writing-world.com

I also belong to a few Yahoo groups and receive their discussions in digest. These are two of my favorites:

childrenswriterstoday

childrenswriters

Two children’s writing newspapers I’ve subscribed to and learned from are Children’s Writer and Children’s Book Insider. And, of course, I’ve found helpful writing books and market guides too numerous to list.

Writing organizations, such as the Institute of Children’s Literature and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, produce their own magazines or newsletters and offer many services to writers. I’ve learned much at conferences and from local chapters of such groups.

If you’ve found another resource helpful, feel free to note it in a comment.

I have read many of these, but I’ll check out the ones I haven’t. Thanks for putting the list together.
