I'm a writer because I have stage fright.

The Monday Post: Links for Readers and Writers

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. 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: I found a TON of good stuff this week. I tried to pare it down but forgive me if the links are a little top heavy. I hope you find them as enjoyable and informative as I did.
