General Reference resources for a Writer
A site that has been in the business of providing writing resources for about as long as we have been providing quality writing
instruction. We highly recommend that you check out their many articles and links for information you may be seeking about almost
any aspect of writing. Inkspot can also help you sift through the many rich resources the Web has for grammar and style, research,
reference, and information about the craft of writing itself.
Inkspot's newsletter, INKLINGS (http://www.inkspot.com/inklings),
is also full of classifieds, markets, resources and more.
An excellent source from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association. This section deals with book doctors, case studies on
various scams, contests and vanity anthologies, copyright, electronic publication and rights, literary agents, and subsidy and vanity
publishers. The SFWA site overall (http://www.sfwa.org/)
is also a good source not only for sf/f writers, but writers in general.
Garbl's Writing Resources Online
I have quite a few bookmarks concerning English grammar, style and usage, words, etc., but Garbl seems to have them ALL in his annotated
directory of online writing sites.
Locus is the long-standing print source about sf/f publishing and the
Web site is a great extension of it!
Useful site for anyone interested in horror and horror writing. Info on free weekly email
newsletter and dark fiction/ horror writing workshop.

markets, etc. from a writer who has been there.

international communication, writing and editing help, listservs,

The overly-animated lay-out defeats the informative purpose here, but
it does offer a lot of links.

best resources about screenwriting and playwriting on the Web
