Happy Night-Time Folks,
This quick little resource post is triggered by Regina (Kudos award goes to her this time!) She was talking about wanting to find a writers' group.
One thing I recommended was finding the most recent (or the 4th edition) of The Complete Idiots' Guide To Getting Published by Sheree Bykofsky and Jennifer Basye Sander.
Come to think of it, that's where I first saw the information about Romance Writers' Of America, although, I did end up searching on the internet and learning more about the RWA and the chapter I want to join when I was looking for Conferences near where I live.
Just be sure that when you're looking things up the phone numbers and sites are updated. I tried to call a number once that was listed in a book for a group and the number was wrong.
Here's some info on writers' groups (including the RWA):
Sisters In Crime (for mystery writers)
National Writers Union (for all genres--free-lance writers).
The Authors Guild (regarding copyrights, et cetera)
Romance Writers Of America (for romance writers--the RWA)
The other thing you can do is do a search. See what comes up.
Best of luck!
Have A Toe-Tapping Thursday Night!
