Resources for Writers

This resource library is a work-in-progress and will soon feature content on each of the following subpages:

FAQ | Current Features: Advice for aspiring writers and dealing with writer’s block

Coming soon: Do I need an MFA? Should I get one anyway? Should I give my writing away for free? How do I build a writing community? How do I find places to publish my work? At what point do I need an agent? Are conferences, workshops, and contest fees all worth it? What should I be reading? How should I be reading?

Reading | Current Feature: Goodreads

More forthcoming on recommended books, websites, podcasts, and literary journals and how to read news articles, TV shows, and movie like a writer.

Writing | Current Feature: Writing Excuses

More to come, including writing prompts, craft book recommendations, and great places to find author interviews.

Publishing | Current Feature: Poets & Writers

More forthcoming on publishing your work, including submissions.

Networking | Current Feature: Wordpress

More forthcoming on using social media, conferences, and other platforms to market your work and build connections with readers, publishers, and other writers.

Teaching | Current Feature: Assay

More forthcoming on teaching, in general, and writing, in particular.

Writers to Follow | Current Feature: Tony Quick

More soon, including friends, colleagues, and other writers whose websites share additional resources.

Environment | Current Feature: Orion

To be honest, I’m not quite sure what all will come in this section. At the very least, expect writing prompts, teaching resources, reading lists, and book reviews with an environmental focus, including place-based and food writing.
