Money-Saving Guide for Authors and Writers is a great resource that came to me from an aspiring young author named Anna through her special librarian Ms. Pedersen. Anna and her mom found this great article while researching writing guidelines for authors and writers and wanted to make sure other aspiring writers like her knew about this! It covers a breakdown of the elements of style, manuscript formatting, working with an editor, finding a literary agent, book proposals, self-publishing, and much more. Take note of the amazing number of scholarships for college students who hope to be writers someday. And the descriptions of the many diverse career options that all require great writers! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. Thanks, Anna (and her mom :)).
Great blog post today from Janet Kobobel Grant at Books & Such Literary Agency. She reiterates the importance of not rushing a manuscript to publication. I found her checklist very helpful and hope you do to.
