Resource Roundup for Freelance Writers

20 Sep

Recently, I scouted out resources for freelance writers. Here are some of the best: 

The WritersDigest is one of the best print magazines for writers, and it has a pretty good website too. They also publish the Best 101Resources for Writers, which you can download when you subscribe to the weekly newsletter

Covering everything from blogging to freelance writing to technical writing Freelance Writing Jobs sends out daily listings.

FreelanceSuccess is a paid subscription newsletter but worth the investment for experienced freelancers.

For updates on the publishing industry few sites beat Media Bistro

Chris Guillebeau continually enlightens the world with his ideas and guides on how to live unconventionally. Here is his free guide to being an overnight success in 279 days. 

ProBlogger is one of the best resources for learning how to produce a profitable blog. Sign up for the newsletter and join over 167,000 hobby and pro bloggers.

Debi Ridpath Ohi (the old Inkspot editor) has generously published a Writer’s Guide to Twitter on her website. Bless her heart.  

And finally, Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) on nurturing creativity: 


Anyone else out there? What are your favorites?
