Writing and Publishing Resources

On your path to publication? Already on the path but looking to grow?

Here are some of my favorite writing resources, from blogs, to spreadsheets, to amazing editors. I hope they help!

Writing and Publishing Websites

Bookends Literary Agency blog | A fantastic resource for writers around publishing, like what to know before querying, etc. They also run a fantastic Youtube channel full of free resources for writers.

Grammar Girl| Such a fantastic site to help with grammar questions.

Manuscript Wishlist| This site is a way for writers to see what agents and editors are looking for. This is a one-stop-shop for some of the tweets found under #MSWL on Twitter.

Misfits & Daydreamers | Recommended to me from agent friend Hannah VanVels, this is New York Times bestselling author Susan Dennard’s newsletter that gives tips about writing, writing tutorials, and behind-the-scenes publishing info.

Pub Rants | From Nelson Literary Agency in which a very nice literary agent indulges in polite rants about queries, writers, and the publishing industry.

Writer’s Digest | Their website description says it best: This is a great resource for writers, celebrating the writing life, and what it means to be a writer in today’s publishing environment.
