Resources For Writers

With hundreds of links from the basics of writing to world building to author pages, the following pages provide resources to help authors with their writing. Writers will also find dozens of links to communities and other places where they can connect with other writers.

The Basics (style, technical, manuscript format, etc)
Literature & Genre
Research: Databases & History
Awareness & Organizations
Connect (classes, critiques, communities, & conferences)
Software & Journaling
Reading & Writing (writer ezines, challenges, & reading)
Publication & Freelance (No Markets)
World Building
Authors & Fan Fiction Sites
Misc Other Stuff (interesting links that don't fit anywhere else)

PORTAL NOTE: I have not tried every single link listed and claim no responsibility for what others claim on their sites. I do not guarentee you'll find what you need or want here, nor do I guarentee you'll get published. Inclusion on these pages is not to be construed as an endorsement of any of these groups or services. Some sites may be scams and it is up to the individual writer to be aware. I just provide these links as a resource to other writers.

*NOTE: for boards that have you post your work directly on the board for reviews/critiques, make sure the areas you post to are open to board members only. posting your writing online can cause problems with later publishing as publishers often see online posting as using the first rights to a piece.
