Spring Connections for Writers

Don’t look now, but spring is just around the corner. Here is a fresh list of writers’ resources we hope will inspire you.

Call Me Ishmael: Do you have a beloved book and a story to go with it? If so, you might enjoy this delightful way to share both. Use the phone number on the website, and leave a voicemail about your book and its story. The stories are transcribed and shared weekly.

Hootsuite.com: This social media dashboard lets you manage multiple networks and profiles and measure results. Most plans are fee-based, but there is a free version. All allow you to measure your social media growth.

IngramSpark: IngramSpark is an online publishing tool that offers access to a vast distribution network for books and e-books. This is a fee-based service, but you can begin for free.

Internet Archive: This free library of millions of books, movies, software and music is especially useful for research and offers access to historical collections in digital format.

Literistic: Each month Literistic collects and emails submission deadlines for literary publications, contests and fellowships. The full service is fee-based, but the shortlist is free.

The Write Life: This site is one-stop shopping for the writer, with free articles, markets and news – and you can write for them, too.

Writers Write: Similar to The Write Life, this service offers free content for the writing community in the form of articles, markets and news.

Happy writing!
