Some resources you may want to know about

You may know about some of these but I thought it couldn't hurt to post them. :)

Kidlitosphere - They do an annual conference on social networking and blogging. This year's is in Washington DC in Oct.

Muse Conference Online - In oct they offer a free lineline conference for writers. All you have to do is register for the yahoo group. YOu must register before August 1st.

Three great online forums for writers:
  • Absolute Write - You don't have to be a member to read, but if you want to participate in the conversations you'll have to register. You can register here: . It's free!
  • Editors Unleashed - they have a great blog and forum
  • VerlaKay
QueryTracker - not only a great resource to track your queries but also has a great blog and forum

AgentQuery - great information on agents. Very through. Also has some great articles on what to ask agents when you get an offer.

Publisher's Marketplace - pay 20$ a month and get an email with the daily deals - listing editor, agent, author, genre and summary. best 20$ I spend. Publisher's lunch newsletter is free but does not list the deals.

SCBWI - society of children's bookwriters and illustrators

Shaw Guides for Writers - lists all national conferences, workshops and events by state for writers

Guide to literary agents blog - all the information you need to know about agents

Nanowrimo - write 50,000 words in a month. Has great information on other topics as well.

What a great list! I'd never heard of the Shaw Guides. And I've been on the fence about upgrading from Publishers Lunch.
