You could look at Roselle Angwin's website, in particular her newly introduced 'Correspondence Course', see:

www.fire-in-the-head.co.uk

This is from the UK, but I assume you can undertake it from overseas (if you are not UK based). It costs and requires committment.
I did the precursor of this 10 module course as an attended taught course (1 day a month plus work in between) two years ago, it was helpful and I got a lot from it. I recommend Angwin who is a great mentor and inspiring.

Worth having a look, anyway.

Regards, Chip.

The following have been of great help to me;

www.bloomsbury.com   - they have a great section for writers including a guide for unpublished authors and a database for reference books. Plus trustworthy list of UK agents

www.writersservices.com  - general all rounder with a list of UK/US agents

www.ukchildrensbooks.co.uk - list of publishers for various age ranges.

and the following because i think all writers tend to be readers;

www.pagebypagebooks.com

hope these are helpful.

I thought I'd give you the URL of a great site which is full of information about how to write a novel.  It talks about what the writer calls the 'snowflake effect' of starting a novel and there's a section called 'writing the perfect scene' (through a link at the top of the page)which takes you step by step through the process using scenes, sequels and what he calls motivation-reaction units.  It's all quite fascinatingly simple to follow as well as being quite useful to anyone trying to write a novel.

The site is at http://www.rsingermanson.com/html/the_snowflake.html

Here are a few of the writers sites that I frequent. Most are forums where one can post ones work, critique and be critiqued. The one exception is Writing Fix. It's a great place to get a prompt if you or your muse is stuck. I'll add to this list as I stumble across the web. Aelf

Bartleby.com -- The Ultimate Reference. (http://www.bartleby.com)

A great reference source. Search encyclopaedias, Roget's Thesaurus, dictionaries (inluding audio pronunciations), the Bible, Shakespeare, Quotations, English Usage and much more. You may be surprised how much reference material is available here.


Authors Calender (http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/calendar.htm)

A website dedicated to biographies and bibliographies of famous authors. At times, it has been a great inspiration for me. Looks a bit dull, but when you click a letter on the left-hand side you'll see why I like it. Generally focuses on high-brow writers, rather than contemporaries, but still worthwhile.

From Linda Jones - Journobiz
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I went to the launch party of the new online resource centre Journobiz last night. It was a very swish affair with leading journalists and the author Imogen Edwards-Jones. They also raised around £1,500 for the premature baby charity Tommy's. Here's some info about the site - I can thoroughly recommend the features on writing 'real life' features, basic media law and copyright. You may want to find out more - there is going to be a charge from May - so you may want to sign up before that. There is also a directory of freelancers you can add your details to. I'm a moderator on the forums. www.journobiz.com

A important web site I feel is the www.preditorsandeditors.com

If a person goes to www.winnningwriters.com
they have a link to       www.preditorsandeditors.com,
they also have a list of poetry scams, and other link's that give warn's to writers of thing's to beware of, like did you know that yahoo's agreement has a clause that threaten's copy rights?
you can check it out at the winning address above.
 
I managed to connect to preditor's with no problem.
Hope this other sight helps you get there.

Hi Everyone!  :D

   I was just going through my favourites file and came across a few that some of you might find of interest.

   www.writelink.co.uk,   www.ipac-publishers.com (for info on Canadian Publishers),   www.writingforchildren.com,   http://ewritersplace.com, www.wewriters.com (another Canadian site), www.writerswrite.com, www.writing.com, www.infinitypublishing.com,   www.bbc.co.uk/dna/getwriting,   www.writesparks.com,   www.oncewritten.com  (Monica Polling is an American lady living and working in California and is currently starting a writers circle type site like this one.  She has some great information for writers and would be writers.  It would be a great boost if anyone could help her out with her site also.  I'm a member there also and I'm sure all suggestions would be more than welcome.)

   I hope this info helps some of you and I hope that you all have a truly wonderful day!  :D
