Resources for Writers
While the primary purpose of this website is to serve as an author page, I have always wanted it to be about more than just me and my writing. I’m a writer, but I’m also a teacher, and I feel a sense of duty to share what I have learned (and continue to learn) about writing with anyone who wishes to benefit from my experience.
This Resources for Writers page is a work-in-progress, a digital library of websites, books, podcasts, and other neat resources I want to share with you. More content is on the way and will be added as I develop it. If you’d like to receive updates when new resources are added, subscribe using the Follow button in the footer of any page.
