Resources for Writers

La Princesse de Cleves presented a new information guide last month: Resources for Visual Artists. The visual artists guide provides all kinds of helpful information for painters, sculptors, and photographers. I'd like to introduce a companion guide: Resources for Writers. This guide provides resources to develop your writing craft, information to aid in connecting with the publishing industry, and opportunities to secure funding for your writing. There is also information about local writing groups as well as vital writers' advocacy organizations. The physical and digital resources featured within the guide are all free to check out or access digitally with your Austin Public Library card.

While writing has the floor, I'd like to suggest three great books about writing.

Milan Kundera's The Art of the Novel

James Wood's How Fiction Works

Annie Dillard's The Writing Life
