for writers and readers….

Safari Friday searching the web for writers and readers — a selection of some of the best from last year

Safari Friday

Here’s a small sample of the websites and online resources I discovered in 2013. They demonstrate what a generous lot writers are – here are places you can learn your craft, show off your work, share information and connect with others.


Short Stops – a website launched in November by Tania Hershman dedicated to the short story literature in the UK and Ireland
ReadWave – shop window for short stories
Womagwriter – How to write stories that will sell to women’s magazines
Paragraph Planet – website run by a writer setting a 75 word writing challenge


The Blood Red Pencil – blog written by a team of writers gives the low down on revision and editing
YouWriteOn – feedback from online community of writers
The Other Side of the Story feedback from a professional. American author Janice Hardy offers supportive advice – lots of other good things on her blog


Book 2 Book – five day a week newsletter about the world of publishing
Script Consultant – weekly newsletter from TV scriptwriter

Safari = Swahili for long journey.I am on the look out for anything accessible from a keyboard that educates, entertains, intrigues, raises a smile. Anything that helps a reader get through the day or a writer the next draft. Let me know if you write a website that you’d like featured or discover something that really should be shared.
