    The See Jane Write blog ( is likely one of THE most useful blogs for writers. Her niche market is for women writers makes the content very significant and useful. It’s always choke full of information that we can always use.

  • Jennifer says:

    I highly recommend See Jane Write. The founder, Javacia Harris Bowser, coaches women on how to blog, including marketing, social media, how to gain followers and monetize your writing and how to use your blog to gain freelance or other writing jobs. Her information is always one step ahead of the game, practical and fun!

  • Olivia Affuso says:

    I love SEE JANE WRITE (! The information featured in this blog helped me to create my brand on social media, launch my own website and blog, and write daily. The increased exposure of my work has also led to features and speaking engagements. Javacia and the tribe are amazing!

  • Leslie L Golden says:

    My favorite writer website, the one I visit EVERY DAY…

    is Why? Because writing is a solitary act and writers feel isolated but the SeeJaneWrite network lets me know I’m not alone. Along with education and support, SJW provides community for writers in the actual and virtual worlds. I would never have begun my blog, much less kept it going for years if I had not had SJW. I wouldn’t have found the grit to do another revision or continue after being rejected. In an indifferent world SJW is a lifeline for those who want to write.

  • Derek Helberg says:

    I enjoy blogging and has given me freedom to write on different spheres, shares tips on blogging, I may not become the best writer around, but I have been energised to investigate various subjects, and meet new people, and maybe earn something while doing what I like.

  • Lauree says:

    my favorite website/blog for writers is because of the practical information and encouragement. there is something there for every type of writer.

  • Caperton says:

    See Jane Write ( is an incredible site aimed at women writers and bloggers. It has advice on writing mechanics like finding inspiration and developing focus and discipline, but it also has information about things like branding and self-promotion for women interested in taking their work in that direction. Javacia is the most incredible person, and the community is full of supportive, encouraging women.

  • Henry O. Akberg says:

    Fantastic word lists and writing tips.

  • Carol N. says:

    I nominate “See Jane Write.” She inspires me to keep blogging, especially when feeling uninspired. I even joined her November #bloglikecrazy challenge where you blog every day for the month. I made it to day 3/4? But let’s not bring up old stuff, lol. She got me blogging and writing again and that was enough to get me going. Please include her in the running.

  • TK says:

  • Mandy Shunnarah says:

    I nominate! Between the workshops, Facebook group, the community of writers, and constant support from our fearless leader, Javacia, there’s no way I’d be the writer I am without See Jane Write. I went from not having a blog to having a fairly popular book blog, and I went from only having journalism published to getting my creative writing published in literary magazines as well. A See Jane Write membership is an absolute must have for any serious writer in need of a community.

  • Faye Lewis says: is my all time favorite! She is a wonderful writer and really big on encouraging others.

  • Joi Miner says:

    See Jane Write, by blogger Javacia Harris-Bowser, offers so much encouragement and advice to women who are aspiring to be writers. This blog shows you that not only is it possible, but that the world needs YOUR individual voice. It has helped me so many nights when I felt alone in my writing struggles and wanted to give up. And she offers great resources as well. Please check her out:

  • Sasha Johns says: Hands down.
    Javacia has managed to connect women from all walks of life and encouraged them to use their voice and their individuality. She’s a force in the online writing world and she’s got the grace and confidence to take other women with her on her journey by teaching them to do the things she excels at.

  • Scott says:

    I’ll nominate

    It’s not technically just about writing but it’s a great resource for indie authors

  • Paula says:

    I’d like to nominate Standoutbooks.

  • Ali Luke says:

    There are so many great writing blogs out there! My two can’t-miss ones, though, are Joanna Penn’s “The Creative Penn” and K.M. Weiland’s “Helping Writers Become Authors”. Both are packed with top-notch advice on writing / self-publishing — and they’re encouraging and inspiring too.

  • Tony Funderburk says:

    I’d like to mention and

    ​I’ve enjoyed articles on these sites for over three years, and they consistently provide quality information for writers and publishers.

    I love! They have an excellent website and send well-written and useful emails with tips and topics that are very pertinent for every writer.

  • Paola Mancini says:

    I have to say that there are several who I really like but if I have to pick I’d say; as first, as I really enjoy their articles and the info they share, a must for all authors.
    Something unusual that I have noticed recently by chance is a blog of travels seen from the point of view of a writer (actually from the point of view of a “wandering writer”):
