WD Call for best Website Nominations

Each year in our May/June issue, Writer's Digest publishes the 101 Best Websites for Writers. 2021 will be our 23rd year doing so and we want your nominations! Use the form below to tell us what your favorite websites for writers are and they just might be included in our next roundup. 

We're looking for websites that offer general writing advice, genre-specific writing advice, sparks of creativity, publishing business advice, tips for finding agents, and much more. 

There is no limit to the number of websites you can nominate, though you'll have to fill out the form again for each new entry. You can, of course, nominate a site that you manage or run (don't be shy!), and you can feel free to share the nomination form with your website readers/followers. However, websites selected to be featured in the final list will be chosen based on the quality of the content, not the number of nominations they receive. 

The last day to nominate websites is Friday, December 18, 2020. 

THE NOMINATION WINDOW IS NOW CLOSED.

(Unlike previous years, please do NOT nominate via our email or the comments function.)
