Indiana Writers Center lists links to sites about agents, publishing, scams, technology, writing craft, and more. The group also offers classes and other programs for writers.


National Novel Writing Month started out as a dare to write 50,000 words - a short novel - in November. It now offers free writing resources year-round. It also hosts the Young Writers Program for writers under 18, with special materials for teachers. (Hint: Adults like the workbooks, too.)
