101 best websites for writers 2012

Writing Forward named one of the 101 best websites for writers.

Every spring, Writer’s Digest publishes a list of the 101 best websites for writers.

It’s a huge honor for any website to make the list. Writer’s Digest is a highly respected publication. Every issue is filled with useful writing resources that cover everything from the craft to the business of writing.

Best of all, the magazine encompasses writers at all levels. Whether you’re just starting out or are already a successful, published author, you’ll find plenty of wisdom inside.

One of the most difficult chores for writers is sifting through the countless writing-related websites available in search of the gems that prove to be a valuable use of your time. That’s why, for more than a decade, we’ve been busy scouring the web for you, rummaging through every online resource imaginable to simplify your search and bring you the best of the best – Writer’s Digest May/June 2012 issue.

The list is jam-packed with websites that offer insight on every aspect of writing.

Writing Forward first made the list in 2009, and I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve done it again, selected as one of the best “from this year’s record-setting 4,350 nominations.” Wow!

Writing Forward was placed in the writing-advice category, and it’s an incredible honor to be recommended by such a prestigious publication and listed among such excellent writing-related websites.

    Congratulations on making the list. It’s great to have all of your hard work acknowledged. I used to read Writer’s Digest all the time, but then blogging was invented and I pretty much just follow writing blogs online now. Anyway, congrats again.

    Congratulations, Melissa! You absolutely deserve the accolade. Since stumbling in here a mere two months ago, I’ve gotten tons useful information. Not to mention that you always respond to comments and have never failed to answer a question. A thousand Brava’s!! (And those are not enough.)

    • Thanks, Paul. You have made some valuable contributions in the comments here, and I’m always happy to answer questions. I figure, what’s the point of having a comments section if you don’t engage with readers (and other writers)? I guess when blogs get over 100 comments a day, it becomes impossible, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Thanks so much for reading, commenting, and congratulating. Keep writing!

    Way to go!

    I think it’s great you have received such an honor! I’m still working on my writing and hope to become published sometime soon. I have enjoyed the information and writing tips you share and find them so helpful. I save a lot of them on my computer after reading them for future reference.
