Manuscript Wishlist:

A great place and resource to determine if an agency and literary agent is right for you. 

Also feel free to search Twitter with #MSWL

Direct from the About page:

Manuscript Wish List® and #MSWL are designed to answer one crucial question in the submissions process: “What do you wish you had in your inbox?”

We’re thrilled to announce that agents and editors can now add and update their own listings—and each page will automatically link to each professional’s #MSWL tweets. Searches are more comprehensive and customizable. And we have plenty of new features on the way.

Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators

If you don’t know about SCBWI, you’re too new to be submitting. They are a fabulous resource with kind people and lots of information. They can teach you about writing and formatting. There are local, regional, and national conferences. If you don’t have a CP they can help you find one. 

Highlights Foundation:

They’re not just a kids magazine. It’s a retreat, a magazine, and a resource.

My personal favorite workshops are Free-Expressions. (I’m not being paid for any of this, just sharing) 

The staff is experienced, knowledgable, and their creativity is off the charts. The workshops are intensive and you will leave knowing more about the craft of writing than you can even imagine. 

This is the tip of the information iceberg. If you want to be a writer you must read. You must write and revise. That’s the truth of it.

We all start at the beginning with clunky sentences, poor grammar, and big dreams. And that’s fine! It’s called the beginning not the polished expert. Give yourself permission to get better. Give yourself permission for writing to take time.
