nanowrimo.org — NaNo in a Nutshell NaNo in a Nutshell What: Writing one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month's time. Who: You! We can't do this unless we have some other people trying it as well. Let's write laughably awful yet lengthy prose together. Why: The reasons are endless! To actively participate in one of our era's most enchanting art forms! To write without having to obsess over quality. To be able to make obscure references to passages from our novels at parties. To be able to mock real novelists who dawdle on and on, taking far longer than 30 days to produce their work. When: You can sign up anytime to add your name to the roster and browse the forums. Writing begins November 1. To be added to the official list of winners, you must reach the 50,000-word mark by November 30 at midnight. Once your novel has been verified by our web-based team of robotic word counters, the partying begins. Where: You write wherever you’d like. On your computer, on your iPad, on a typewriter---anywhere is fine, just as long as you’re writing! For a more in-depth NaNoWriMo overview, visit the devilishly handsome "What is NaNoWriMo?"and "How NaNoWriMo Works" pages.

firstwriter.com — Getting a literary agent can be the first vital step towards getting published, but here at firstwriter.com we understand that, as a writer, you want to be spending your time writing – not spending hours trawling through reference books searching for that one agent in a hundred who sounds like they might be interested in your work; or hunting through hundreds of sites on the Internet for days on end just to scrape together a handful of out-of-date leads.   That's why we've created the literary agents database – with the ability to search using any combination of over fifteen different variables you can find exactly what you're looking for in a matter of seconds – leaving you time to concentrate on producing your next masterpiece.   Our InstantAlert service also allows you to receive daily updates by email about new and changing listings – meaning that you can be the first to react when things change, and first to capitalize on those precious opportunities when new agencies are launched, while they are still hungry for new talent.   As well as the ability to search the database for more specific queries you can also browse alphabetically like a traditional print listing by using the links below. You can browse all listings, listings for a particular country, or for a particular subject (to combine these criteria use the search tool above).All listingsUnited StatesUnited KingdomFictionCrimeEroticFantasyHistoricalHorrorHumourLiteraryMen's InterestsMysteryPoetryRomanceScience Fiction Short StoriesSuspenseThrillersWomen's InterestsNonfictionAcademicAutobiographyBeauty and FashionBiographyCookeryCrimeCurrent AffairsGardeningHealthHistoricalLeisure LifestyleMen's InterestsMilitaryNaturePsychologyReligiousScienceSportTravelWomen's InterestsScriptsFilm ScriptsTV ScriptsRadio ScriptsTheatre Scripts   firstwriter.com
