Writer’s Digest is the premiere magazine for writers. And by premiere, I mean it’s sort of a big deal (aff link).
So, when I found out that Writing Forward had been chosen as one of the “101 Best Websites for Writers,” I was perfectly speechless.
When I regained my vocabulary, it was just jumbled. What does one say to something like this?
I’m honored, flattered, and excited. To be mentioned in a publication like Writer’s Digest is no small achievement, and it only makes me want to work even harder to bring you the very best creative writing tips and ideas.
Best Websites for Writers
Every year, Writer’s Digest accepts suggestions for websites to be included on this prestigious list. This year, over 2700 entries were received and then narrowed down to just 101 of the very best.
The list is organized by category: challenges/creativity, general resources, agent blogs, publishing resources, jobs and markets, writing communities, genres/niches, and fun for writers.
Writing Forward is listed under “Writing Communities,” which sweetens the honor, since the writing community is what drives this blog and keeps me going week after week.
If you’re looking for some great websites for writers, then you’ll find plenty of treasures on this list. And if you’re any kind of writer, you’ll find Writer’s Digest packed with valuable and useful information from creative writing tips to insight on landing an agent and getting published.
