Hi Writers,
I’ve included a handy link in the left navigation to our 2008 101 Best Websites for Writers.

We’ve been running this list annually for 10 years now, and we’re quite proud to be able to spotlight these great resources. As you can imagine, weeding through the thousands of nominations we receive each year is a difficult, time-consuming process. Our online managing editor, Brian A. Klems took on this monumental task once again this year, and he put together yet another phenomenal list.

Of course, when we publish this list each year, we inevitably get questions about how we choose because it’s become quite competitive. So to help out, here are 3 things you should know if you want to get your website in the running for our 2009 list:

1. The website must be nominated (you can nominate your own website or another favorite website by submitting to writersdigest@fwpubs.com.) We collect nominations throughout the year, and publish the list in our June issue (June deadlines hit in early January).

2. Although some of the websites we choose do have paid elements, it’s essential that there’s a substantial amount of free content of value to writers.

3. We judge our advertisers websites no differently than we would any other nominated website; the criteria are the same.

If you have any questions or comments about our 101 Best Websites for Writers, please post them here. Brian and I will be happy to answer.

Keep Writing,

    I bookmarked quite a few of those on the list this year. They look like they will really help my writing (except when I’m so busy looking on-line that I forget to actually write…) 😛 hehe

    This is great information and I appreciate all the hard work it took to get it to us. Of course, I am starting with the "jobs" sites in hopes of finding something I enjoy and make money at the same time 🙂
