All writers need a little support. As I've worked on gathering the best expert sources for Write Nonfiction in November, and as I've networked with other writers and writing-related professionals at conferences, I've begun gathering together a list of the best resources for writers. I list them here to provide a bit of extra support for those who need it. I hope you find these resources as helpful as have I.
Please check the Write Nonfiction in November website as well for resources. There a few listed there that may not have made this list.
If the resource has an asterisk (*) after it or says "Please tell him/her I sent you," this means I have either an affiliate account with the company or some sort of referral agreement. I would, however, not send you to any company or person I do not use or trust.
