    Scribendi’s blog ( is a good resource for writers because it covers a wide range of writing-related topics (e.g., grammar, finding inspiration to write, the mechanics of writing, how to edit your work).

    I hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing the completed list! 🙂

    My all time favorite is Hope Clark’s “Funds for Writers.” Hope shares good advice and offers many places to submit work, find writing jobs and/or grants and residencies. I’ve never been more pleased with a writer’s resource than I am with Funds for Writers! One other thing that Hope does so very well is that is is an advocate for writer’s not settling for less than what they are worth.I know her writings have often been a good “kick in the pants” for me!

    Janice’s blog is a fantastic resource.

    My favorite site for writers is Yes, it’s an author’s site, but under the link For Writers ( one can subscribe to his (nearly) daily writing tips. Add to that his site, which is much more geared to writing fiction and you have fete complete. In his posts/emails/My Story Doctor content he covers not only the life of writing but also the business of writing and how to push for great deals. His prolific career over close to 30 years makes him one of the best writing teachers out there.

  • Aba says: is my favourite freelance writing website.

  • Devon Watson says:

    My favorite writing websites are and Rap Genius. I use both to write my own music for free. is made so any artist can get familiar with the process and have a headstart. Basically to make sure you are comfortable to perform. Rap Genius allows you to both see other artists’ lyrics and your own. Those are two of my favorite writing websites. Another I use is Facebook, but I only use that to speak my mind when something is irritating me.
