Resources for Writers


Below are several handouts containing resources, both in print and on-line. Some have to do with editing while others deal with plot, genre fiction — mysteries, suspense, crime fiction, detective novels), character development. There are a few about screenwriting, though they are for writers in general, showing how the tools of screenwriting can be used in fiction. All of the lists have books and other material that pertain to writers in general, both as to the craft and the life of writing. I received these from the various workshops and conferences I’ve attended in the past. Click on the link to open a particular file. They are in pdf format.
