"Good for Pro writers"

Writerswrite is probably the most print magazine type zine available on the net although for new and developing writers the information vaailable is not all that useful.
WW is aimed at professional writers, offering industry news that is second to none for those already well known to the editors doing the buying. Freelancing afterall, is 80% marketing and networking, getting to know the people who you are trying to sell your work to. If you have already reached this stage then the information provided could prove invaluable in your marketing efforts. However for the new writer looking for that first sale or developing writers looking to expand their portfolio, much of it is of limited use. The market information section rarely provides anything that is going to get you a head start on you competitors. As an editor as well as a freelance writer I know how important it can be to get your submissions in before your competitors, so in this respect WW comes up short.
However, if you are interested in writing generally, getting to know more about the industry or developing your writing skills then the features on the site are excellent. Most are contributed by top class writers with a long track record in newspapers and magazines.
Writerswrite is not my favourite site, generally I stick to scanning the email newsletter which keeps me up to date on what's new and only go to the site once every couple of months when something of relevance to my particular interest is posted. My advice - if you are trying to increase your sales, give it a miss. If you want to know more about the industry - it's worth a look.

    I used to use poetry.com for a while but have to admit that I kind of got out of the whole writing thing after a while. Really regret it now! Good review. Loz x
