For more than 120 years, The Writer Magazine has been an important resources for those making or trying to make their career out of writing. Even today, The Writer Magazine has a strong presence on the Internet.
This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.
Before the age of the Internet, writers and those who wanted to be professional writers often had to get their information about the publishing industry from magazines. One of the oldest of those magazines is The Writer, originally published in 1887.
The magazine is still around and still strong, but it also has a strong Web presence. One can subscribe to the magazine, and/or become an online member of the site, but if you don’t there is still plenty of free information available at The Writer Magazine online.
In my opinion, one of the strongest elements of this site is the Market Directory, in which writers can search for publishers and agents who are in need of work from writers.
You can also do a bit of Shopping, all book and magazine related, of course.
Being that The Writer Magazine is the oldest magazine about writing still being published, it is a solid source for all updated information concerning writing and publishing. Writers who are serious about their craft and business should give it a look.
