Fun Sites to Visit

 

Writer Resources

http://www.pw.org/ – Poets & Writers. I absolutely love this site and their magazine.  The site and magazine are bursting with information on writing classes, literary magazines, and writing conferences. There are writer forums and a directory of fellow writers. One can visit this site and easily spend an hour browsing topics.

 

 

 

http://www.faithwriters.com/index.php – Faith Writers is a wonderful site for Christian writers. You can find writing challenges, writing critiques, writing courses, and forums on this site.  There’s also a monthly newsletter and an annual writer’s conference.

http://www.creativewritingprompts.com/ – The cure for writer’s block. I’ve visited this site often just to get my creative juices flowing again. At last count, this site had 346 writing prompts.

 

http://www.apastyle.org/ – American Psychological Association. Some editors and higher learning institutions require APA Style. This site provides APA style formatting. This site was a life saver for me because most of my professors insisted on the APA format. As a result my overall writing style improved immensely where the APA style is now second nature to me.

http://www.writecite.com/ – This site helps you to make sure that your citation or reference is in APA format.
