Writers' Resources

There are many places where writers can find help and inspiration – books, websites, workshops and courses; support groups in your local library or on social media; that person at a party who tells you they’d write if they had more time, but they know you’ll find it useful to hear the entire plot of their thirteen-part masterwork anyway?

Well, maybe not that last one.

I’m going to be gathering together things here that I’ve found helpful, which writer friends have recommended, or which I think sound intriguing.

If you’d like to tell me about anything you have found spurred you on or helped you hone your skills, please get in touch.

I’m going to be adding a lot to this in the coming months, so it’s worth popping back from time to time to see what’s been added.

Happy writing!

Inspiration and enlightenment

Fancy title, but basically stuff to get you started and good sources of information on everything from finding agents to why phrases like 'advance planning' are just wrong

Beefing Up Your Skills

Books, websites, courses and workshops that can help you develop your skills and tell you that you are not alone in your word wrestling

Shorter fiction

Good things come in little packages sometimes ... short stories, flash fiction, fan fiction
