Phil Sexton, a cohort of Writer’s Digest magazine, actually went through 80+ years of magazine back issues to scour for the best gems in WD‘s past. In doing so, he found old articles on writing penned by writers such as H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, Tom Clancy, Ken Kesey, Dean Koontz, Stan Lee, and many more. His research led to a book called Legends of Literature.
In an article online, he talks about the book and his research. Check it out!
As always, Alice Pope’s blog – Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market – has tons of information for writers of juvenile and children’s fiction. A recent post includes a full listing for what Chronicle Books is seeking.
If you’ve ever considered going back to school for writing but don’t have the time, consider one of many Writers Online Workshops. The online classes usually last six or 12 weeks and are taught by Writer’s Digest staffers and contributors.
I myself will be teaching a class called “Getting Started in Writing” that starts on Dec. 6, so sign up now!
