We thank you for your patience during our annual site maintenance over the past two months. The entire network has been updated and improved upon and you are welcome to begin adding your writing at this time. If you are new to our network, please visit the How to Submit page to get started. As always, it’s FREE to register, write, and share on our network.

Our next writing contest is now open and accepting submissions.

The theme of this contest is ANGELS. Many short stories and poems will be selected for publication and three top submissions will also win cash prizes! Click HERE for more info.

Be sure to stop by our new and improved Resources Page!

It’s packed full of valuable links, tools, books, articles, publishers, graphic designers, editors … you name it! Contact us to add your business or service to our Resources Page.

We’ve added many tools to aid in your writing journey, so be sure to check out our Online Courses and Freelance Job Board as well.

We will be updating these pages weekly so be sure to check back often!


In this 8-Week Book Writing Intensive, you will work with author, publisher and writing coach, Shanda Trofe, along with other participants to develop your story idea, brainstorm and outline your manuscript, develop your writing skills, sharpen those writing skills, build an author platform, and learn about the many publishing options available and how to choose the one that’s right for you.

You’ll also learn how to tackle the polishing and revision process with ease so you may submit your opening chapter for feedback from Shanda.  And, as an added bonus, those who finish the program will also have the opportunity to pitch their book proposal for a chance at publication!

That’s right! A complete publishing package will be awarded to one lucky participant from this Intensive!
