To other recommended resources:

Little Red Pen –website of Liz Hudson, who did such a wonderful job of editing White Feathers and keeping me honest.

Writing.ie – Excellent site containing a wealth of resources. Have dealt with Vanessa several times and find her very prompt and professional.

Emerging Writer – This wonderful blog contains all manner of writing resources. Highly recommended.

Fighting Words – I have done voluntary work for this organisation which provides creative writers’ workshops for schools. I think it’s a wonderful idea – they do sterling work – and only wish there were more such facilities available for young people.
