Cool Resources for Writers

Helpful online resources
Scriptologist: This site combines the three most powerful elements of online marketing content, commerce and community for those in screenwriting.

Sips Card: This paying market puts short fiction and poetry in local coffee shops around the country. Each card has a quick response code loaded with a short story or set of poems from an independent writer meant to last as long as a cup of coffee. The card includes the author's name, story title and website/email.

Stoneslide Books: Launched in February 2012, this fiction press seeks narratives — primarily novels — that prompt readers to think, ask questions and "move the mind forward."

Teachers and Writers Collaborative (T&W): T&W sends professional writers into schools and communities to teach creative writing, and conducts professional development workshops for teachers and administrators. T&W has published more than 80 books, and publishes Teachers & Writers Magazine.

Writer's Bloq: This supportive site is about and for writers and their writing. Writers can create a portfolio and share their work with writers and gain a readership that can open publication doors. The community is based on creative cooperation and idea promotion.

Writers Conference & Centers (WC&C): This database allows writers to search for regional, national and international conferences, centers, festivals, residencies and retreats. Search by region and/or genre, and find scholarship opportunities as well. WritersNet www.writers.net/agents: This site helps writers showcase their work to be found by agents, editors and publishers.
