The Monday Post: Links for Readers and Writers

ice, winter, writing, editing, reading, edited from original,

I am *continuing a series (inspired by Electric Literature) where I post important links for writers and readers on Mondays. They may be old links or new links, but they’ll be ones that I find the most interesting or helpful. I’m also adding a few new categories. If there are any particular topics you’d like to read about, please feel free to suggest them in a comment on this post.

*AUTHOR NOTE: Readers I would love to hear feedback. Do you enjoy reading a certain type of article? What were some of your favorite featured works? Do you have a creative piece you’d like to see featured (email me, must be in a literary journal, must not be your own work, genre must be evident)?
