Writing Resources

If you're interested in kidlit or about poetry or about how to get published...

this is the place where you might like to hang out sometimes.

I LOVE sharing information and love helping others. We're all on a journey together and sometimes it can be challenging sifting through allllll the writing resources online. It can feel overwhelming and hours can just widdle away as you bookmark page after page.

I am hopeful this page will be useful to you + I will update it frequently as I find more resources for writers.

Please add your own favorites or suggestions in the comment section. :-)

    1. Thanks, Karrlin! I hope that they are helpful. ;)

  2. Dear Becky, I lived four years in Burma and I have published a novel about this country untitled "Zawgyi, l'alchimiste de Birmanie", ed. Publibook/Mon Petit Editeur, 2012. Unfortunately, it is only available in French and I would like to know if you had any tips on how to have it translated and published in English. By the way, congratulations on your blog, which is very interesting. You can also visit mine: http://jak-bazino.blogspot.fr. I thank you in advance for your help.
