The WRITE Resource Guide

It’s easy to get lost looking for writing resources. When I first signed up for Twitter to build a social platform, I simply didn’t know where to begin. Through writing courses, online writing buddies that I’ve acquired, beta readers and critique partners I’ve had the pleasure of working with, I’ve built this list. I call it my WRITE resource list for writers, no matter the stage of writing, who are finding their way establishing their craft. I have personally visited/used/read all of the resources below, so if you have any questions, send me a message and I’ll be sure to respond. Also, if you have other sources to share, do that too!


While writing is something we do in isolation, it takes a village to publish.
