Writing Resources for Writers

There are countless writing resources available to writers. If you Google Writing Resources you’ll see it states that there are about 891 million listings under the heading. As, I guess, there are probably no more than a million professional writers in the world, that would be eight hundred and ninety-one resources for each of one us. Even if you check Resources for Writers – which is a slightly different thing – you will see there are 135 million listings. There is such a thing as too much information.

What I intend to do here is list those writing resources that I personally can vouch for as being useful. I will initially break it down into organisations that I know support writers: I know because I belong, or have belonged, to them.

I will also list websites that I personally find helpful, with a line or two about what I have found useful. I may, if it is useful, start segmenting them into writing resources for fiction and non-fiction writers – maybe even special resources for business writing and writing for government.
