Writers’ Links

Here the editors will drop useful links every once in a while regarding submitting tips, editing, writing in general, or fiction forums.

If anyone has any links they’d like to add as well, please do so! Your comments on posted links are also appreciated.

  1. WRITING.COM

    The below statement was taken from the Writing.com website:

    “Writing.Com is the online community for writers and readers of all interests and skill levels. Whether you’re an enthusiastic, creative writer looking for the perfect place to store and display your writing online or a casual reader searching for a good story, Writing.Com is the website for you! With 546,282 members and 1,215,503 literary items created since inception,
    this community is bursting with activities, inspiration and creativity.

    Free memberships are available to everyone. Each membership includes an online writing portfolio, numerous writing tools, email services and the chance to meet and bond with fresh creative minds, just like you! No other website services the Writing world better than we do.”

    We highly reccomend Writing.com for any new, seasoned, published or newbie writer of any genre. The site provides free portfolio uploads, contests, writing forums, interactive feedback from other members, and is a great place to meet other writers with similar interests.

    Leucrota Press frequently visits Writing.com, leaving reviews on works here and there, and hosting contests above and beyond our normal printing schedule. Check it out.

  2. FIRSTWRITER.COM

    The below statement was taken off of the FIrstwriter.com website:

    firstwriter.com’s mission is, quite simply, to help you get published. Whether you’re an aspiring writer or an established professional, we aim to provide you with the tools you need to find placements for your writing quickly, accurately, and with minimum cost.

    By harnessing the power of the Internet firstwriter.com is able to offer writers a range of services, covering the same material as several traditional print books combined. By using advanced database searching tools writers are able to create customised lists of potential markets, turning the time taken scouring listings from hours to seconds. And by cutting out the expense of printing, paper, and distribution, the cost can be kept to less than that of a monthly magazine.

    Firstwriter is another good forum-style website for authors looking to connect with others, get critiques, and read others’ works. They also host and post contests from around the web, and make it easy to get information on markets, publishers, and writing tools.

  3. Below are a few links to both online writing communities, as well as courses that you can take online in the traditional one-on-one setting.

    Classes:

    http://www.writingclasses.com/
    Gotham Writers’ Workshop, teaches more than 6,000 students a year. Breaks classes up into different genres, styles, and lengths.

  4. SPECULATIONS.COM

    (Below taken from website)
    “In its current incarnation, Speculations is an online resource for writers who wish to break into or increase their presence within the science fiction, fantasy, horror, and “other” speculative fiction subgenres.”

    We highly recommend this website as a nice and informative forum for writers to keep track of market news, brag about sales, see how others are doing on submissions, ask questions, and just meet other writers.
