Many thanks to the IWSG Admins who helped put it together - Joy Campbell, Michelle Wallace, Joylene Nowell Butler, Susan Gourley/Kelley, L. Diane Wolfe, Lynda Young, - and me, Alex J. Cavanaugh.
It is still a work in progress and we will continue to add to it over time. You will find pages full of links to great sites and databases under the following subjects – Writing Tips; Publishers, Agents, Queries; Self-Publishing; Marketing; Contests; and Publications.
We also have a page where you can leave suggestions for sites to add to the database. Note we are looking for sites, not individual posts!
The IWSG List will be hosted here, as well as on Alex J. Cavanaugh’s site.
The first Wednesday will be an encouraging word from the team, and every Monday will be a post from one of the admins about writing, designed to encourage and give you some valuable information or resources.
We also have a Facebook page HERE. Just make a request to join the group - we have admins standing by and approving requests as they come in.
Eventually, we intend to open it up for guest posts on Wednesday, and expand to include Twitter and possibly a newsletter. (The Twitter hashtag is still #IWSG.)
We invite you to follow and explore our new site. And let us know what we can do to make it a great resource for writers.
Thanks everyone for your dedication to the IWSG and making this site a reality!
Today’s awesome IWSG co-hosts - Julie Luek, Rachna Chabria, Beverly Fox, and Ilima Todd! Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome.
Just happened to run across this. Looking good!

Hi Alex. I thought I was a member here but maybe this is new. Hello to Michelle and Lynda and all the others who are familiar with Eve and The Desert Rocks. I am here due to Elizabeth Craig's site!! Congratulations.

So glad to see the website up! Great work everyone! :)

Still waiting for the
badge code- html!
Looks great! Followed the new blog. I mentioned in September that our house was on the market. We sold it, so I skipped this month in order to house hunt and pack. We have to be out by 28 October and don't have any place to move in yet. I hope we find a new place and I'm settled enough to post next time. We'll see. Either way, since my last critique group meeting, I've been jazzed to write again. Just don't have time yet.
I forget if I posted here, but thrilled with this site, and have shared all of the information on another blog I have at WP....Sandy
