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
