I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I ate too much, and spent too much money! It was awesome.
I received my copy of “Writer’s Market Deluxe Edition 2013” and thought I’d share some information with you. I purchased it from Amazon for $21.00 LESS than the cost at Barnes & Nobles, plus I receive an entire year of writers market online. For additional information concerning these writing tools, click here.
I’ve known about duotrope.com for some time, and have used it to search for markets to submit short stories to. This website is FREE, and overall user-friendly. They offer a key chart to see what markets pay, don’t pay, are accepting submissions, and list their websites. The search function offers several factors in order to either limit your search, or broaden it, depending on what you’re looking for. Duotrope.com lists several markets, updated news concerning the industry, interviews with editors and more.
Another site I have subscribed to is fundsforwriters.com. Hope Clark hosts this site and is a freelance writer and published author. It’s full of information concerning grants and scholarships for writers. I don’t mean going back to school, but to help you pay your bills while writing! Hope also offers a newsletter, information on markets, contests and more.
I’ll share more as I read and learn. I’d love to hear what sites have worked for you as well.
Until Next Time…
