Writers can be divided into roughly two groups: those who get paid for their work and those who don’t. Inkspot is a resource center for writers either belonging to or aspiring to that first group. This may not be the prettiest site on the web, but it’s got it where it counts. The quantity and quality of information of interest to working writers available here is substantial. The searchable database of magazine writers guidelines is worth the bookmark all by itself. Inkspot also provides discussion forums for writers, resource and market guides broken down by genre, a slew of advice columns and feature articles on both the artistic and business aspects of writing, classified ads and many many links to other sites. It’s huge. You can also subscribe to Inklings, a biweekly email newsletter for writers. Want to do this writing thing for a living? Inkspot can help you. (DW)
