Welcome! As a writer, you know the publication journey can seem like a lonely one. 

Well, it doesn’t have to be. 

We’re in the process of making this site a super information hub where you can find a comprehensive database of writing and publishing resources. In short, a place focused on all things writing.

We need your help to fulfill the vision behind the Insecure Writers Support Group site and with that in mind would love to have you share your best links with us in the comments. These invaluable sites will be incorporated into the databank.

Thanks for your help and don’t be a stranger. Please feel free to let us know when you come across a site you believe should be listed here. (Please suggest whole sites, not individual articles or blog posts.)

Query Shark is one of the best sites I know for learning about how to write queries. It's a fantastic resource from a well-known agent.

Also, Chuck Wendig's blog is full of advice and tips for writers. It's NSFW and full of naughty words, but it's also a great resource.

Thanks, all! What a great site!

May I humbly suggest Unicorn Bell?

Thanks, Liz!

Carol, that one is on the list to add.

I saw that you have, but I didn't see That one is the forum where you can go to get help, query crits, find beta readers or critique partners...stuff like that. (Just in case you didn't know) Of course, you maybe already have it down and I just didn't see it.

Just wanted to put it out there in case. :)

I'd like to suggest the CompuServe Books and Writers Community:

It's a real treasure.

I like your effort and anxiously await developments as you develop your site.

I have two favorites to propose for your data base:

1. : This is a blog by an up-and-coming memoirist and fiction author. I enjoy his irreverent tips on writing and life. Like your site, his is developing and I'm interested to see where he goes with it. This title from a recent post pretty much sums up his strange but refreshing approach: "Cunilingus Cupcake: The Element of Shock in Good Writing."

2. : This blog is especially dear to me as Elizabeth Craig is a mystery writer as I am. But her analysis of the industry and what it takes to succeed is really a must read for all aspiring writers, not just writers of whodunits.

Thanks, Leigh! Elizabeth's site was one of the first ones we listed here. It's awesome.

this one is good for fantasy writers - the Serendipity Random Name Generator. it generates fantasy novel titles, country names, people names, and interesting places and cities for your ficticious country. and it's free.
