As every writer knows, it’s easy to spend hours searching for new magazines either to read or to submit work to. I could easily browse the archives at the Southbank Poetry Library for hours, or look about at ezines and while that’s all well and good – after all, a writer needs new markets for their work – sometimes I find the time spent can eat into my writing time. So, to make life easier for myself, here’s a few places where markets, competitions and advice for writers is all just a click away:

Write Out Loud Directory – for poetry resources, festivals, competitions etc.

The Poetry Library – competitions, magazines, publishers (small and major press).

Absolute Write – forums which offer support to all writers, whether novice or pro.

After all, every writer needs a supporting hand from time to time!

A Helping Hand - support for writers and poets

About Leilanie Stewart

Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry. In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books. CONNECT WITH ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
