Writerly Resources

I have compiled a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite online resources for writers. Below you will find everything from writing advice and writing challenge websites to Twitter pitch parties and beyond. I hope these links are as helpful for my fellow writers are they are for me!

Manuscript Wish List-Your one-stop-shop when you’re ready to search through a plethora of listings to find out what kinds of manuscripts agents and editors are hungry for.

#PitMad-Twitter pitch party for everything from picture books to adult works.

SCBWI-The official website for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

NaNoWriMo-Home of National Novel Writing Month. This November event is not for the faint-hearted.

Tara Lazar-Website/blog of children’s book author, Tara Lazar, and home of Storystorm (formerly known as PiBoIdMo).

#PitchWarsContest where established authors, editors, and interns mentor writers and help polish their manuscripts and pitches in the hopes of helping them land an agent at the end of the event.

Writing With Mentors-Writing blog run by a group of Pitch Wars mentors.

#PBPitch-Twitter pitch party especially for picture books.
