Do you need an honest opinion about your writing? Have you written a manuscript that you need help with? Are you looking for a professional proofreader and copyeditor? Do you just need someone to help you to brainstorm and get organized? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, I recommend you get in touch with Writer Advice. Writer Advice is a reasonably priced Manuscript Consultation Service that also offers a number of writer’s resources.
They have grown from an e-mailed research newsletter for writers into an e-zine that invites reader participation and celebrated their ten-year anniversary in October 2007. Writer Advice’s quality fiction, poetry, interviews, reviews, and articles reach readers around the globe.
The primary focus has always been author interviews, and editor B. Lynn Goodwin has had the privilege of corresponding with over 90 well-known and debut authors who have shared their experiences, insights, and inspiration with readers. Recent interviews are archived.
Today Writer Advice not only promotes authors through its interviews but also publishes both experienced and emerging writers, showcasing fresh ideas and high quality writing. Click on Guidelines to learn more. They accept book reviews, prose and poetry. Because reading onscreen is 25% harder than reading on paper, Writer Advice prefers shorter pieces.
They are currently running their 8th Flash Prose Contest and seek flash fiction, memoir, and creative non-fiction running 750 words or less. Enlighten, dazzle, and delight them. Finalists receive responses from all judges.
DEADLINE: Submit to the 8th WriterAdvice Flash Prose Contest by April 18, 2013.
Want to contribute on the editorial side? Writer Advice needs help with publicity. Tell your writing peers about them. Bring them advertisers. Make suggestions and be prepared to spearhead the project. Volunteer your services and they will probably say yes. They particularly need a Promotions/Marketing Director. E-mail Lgood67334@comcast.net with your ideas.
