Resources for Writers

This resources section is intended as a toolkit for writers. It contains information to help you write your story, book, poem, or article; to prepare it for publishing; to find a publisher; and to market it once it has been released. These pages include the names of people who can help you edit your material, can read and review it, and can help publicize or place it. Their names have not been collected from lists; they have been recommended by members who have personally worked with those named.

This is a work in progress! We need members’ recommendations for individuals with whom the members have worked and can endorse.  Please email your recommendations to

While we update these listings regularly, it is recommended to contact the listing itself for the most recent information.

Here are the sections of resources included.
