You have a flair for writing and have produced some interesting reads, yet the only people who’ve heard about them are perhaps your friends, your parents, your mirror and the stray dog who kept you company for a few minutes in the park.
I recommend visiting firstwriter.com – a comprehensive resource for the experienced and first time writer. They provide a range of resources with their literary agents and publishers’ databases, where you can browse listings per country or your favourite subject (fiction, poetry, scripts etc.) and a broad list of writing tips. At firstwriter.com, the emphasis is to provide you with the resources needed to advance your writing career – as their classes for writers will not only help improve your writing, they’ll teach you how to sell more books.
“Welcome to firstwriter.com, every writer's indispensable internet resource. This site aims to provide you with all the information you need as you progress in your writing career.”
Not only will they proofread your work , find you a literary agent or publisher (for a nominal fee) – they will also help you find a writing competition suited to your particular interest and as the “struggling” writer, you’ll love that the competitions are free and offer huge cash prizes.
If you are hosting or know of a competition, they will feature the competition free.
Don’t have a piece to submit for a competition – firstwriter.com provides you with the opportunity to earn cash with their affiliate program. I looked at this as an earn while you learn approach. They offer 15% on poetry competition entries and over 50% on new monthly subscriptions
More importantly – a website may contain valuable content to assist me with my writing, but if navigation requires a compass, I steer clear of it. At firstwriter.com, navigation is easy and you’ll spend more time writing instead of searching – as it should be.
Write every day – even if it’s just a journal. Write – WRITE – W R I T E – Right?
