2009 Writer's Digest Best Websites List Published

As you may know, every year the top US writing magazine Writer's Digest publishes its list of the Top 101 Websites for Writers, as voted for by its readers.

The 2009 list has just been published, and I was delighted to see that my forum at www.mywriterscircle.com was included - the third successive year it has been on the list.

There are some changes in the 2009 list compared with previous years. For one thing, the websites have been divided into categories, as follows:
  • Agent Blogs
  • Writing Communities
  • Publishing Resources
  • Jobs and Markets
  • Creativity and Challenges
  • Genres/Niches
  • General Resources
  • Fun for Writers
As a side thought, I find it slightly surprising that there is a section for agent blogs, but not one for blogs by writers or editors (of which there are some excellent examples). I also wonder whether non-writing-specific sites such as Twitter should really be on the list, useful though this service undoubtedly is.

Nevertheless, I strongly recommend spending a little time exploring the Writer's Digest 101 Websites List for 2009, as there are lots of great resources listed there. If you're anything like me, some you will know already, but others will be new to you. I've already found several such sites to add to my Favorites list!
