Writing is about more than putting pen to paper. With these additional writing resources, you can get feedback on your writing, learn to be a better writer, find agents and markets, and even explore self-publishing opportunities – all exclusively from WritersDigest.

2nd Draft

Writers send their work to 2nd Draft Critique Service and get the specific, tailored advice they need to get an extra edge on the competition — and make their work more marketable. After a thorough evaluation of the submission, a hand-selected-professional writer will give detailed feedback and recommendations. Writers learn not only what’s working in the writing, but what’s not, and — most importantly — how to fix it.
