Motivation & Advice for Writers from Writers


Sloan's Suggestion

Especially for new and unpublished writers, I suggest following agents, editors, publishers, and published authors on Twitter. You can learn a lot about the business via 140 character tweets: how to query and submit, tips on writing, what's going on in the publishing industry, and more. Be sure to use your author name for your Twitter handle so you can begin branding yourself and your work. Good luck!
