Writer’s Resources and Websites

If a writer is to have any chance at publication he or she must read, write and have access to great resources. Below is a list of ten resources I feel are important. Please note some of these ten links have multiple resources within them.
Writer's Digest – In addition to the magazine, they offer a blog, newsletters, various publishing and editing services as well as a store full of great references.
Hope Clark is the founder of FundsforWriters.com Her aim is to connect writer’s with opportunities to be published. She advertises markets, competitions, conferences, agents and publishers. You can sign up for her FREE newsletters. Her mystery novels were just accepted by Bell Bridge Books for publication - the first to be released in winter 2011/2012. She has been published in Writer's Digest, The Writer, Writer’s Market Guide to Literary Agents, TURF Magazine, Landscape Management and many more. You can view her resume’ on her blog.
Just Open a Vein edited by William Brohaugh
Technology Resources are just as important.
AP Stylebook and INTA for trademarked words.

What resources do you use or find invaluable?

What awesome resources.
Im thinking the copywrite and legal advice is extremely important.
I love reader's digest. I have been reading that since I was just a young kid. Dad always seem to have a copy of it around.

Perfect post to double down on the U! Great resources are a must - and thanks to the interweb they are ever more accessible - but an assemblage of them is always a help! Thanks for posting this! Cheers!

Wonderful information. Thank you, Sylvia! (I'm particularly interested in the links to Jung, Campbell and Vogler's works.)

I recently learned about this website (and I've found it very useful) http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/

Also this blog has lots of interesting articles for historical writers: http://historyundressed.blogspot.com/

Thanks for stopping by my blog during this A-Z challenge.

Couldn't help but noticed a letter missing in your reference to Writer's Digest. Can you spot it?
