Writing.ie has launched. It’s the project of Vanessa O’ Loughlin author and founder of Inkwell Writers (inkwellwriters.ie) who gives a wonderful video welcome on the site. Writing.ie is an ambitious undertaking that has so much to offer writers at every level. The site is pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate but there are many areas of interest to choose from.
The Writer’s Toolbox is really excellent, it covers everything from writing better fiction to getting published, new perspectives on the digital publishing arena. It also highlights a range of services, competitions and resources.
Elsewhere on the site, there are interviews with established writers in a wide range of genres and disciplines including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. There are regular bloggers, Catherine Ryan Howard with her ebook success story, Kristi Thompson with funny interviews from writers and people related to the industry, Kate Dempsey who helps us explore and access poetry and poetry writing. I will also be blogging on head space and the challenges of finding creativity in our busy lives. There are details of courses and writing events and an online forum will soon be up and running.
There are a whole lot of resources for readers too: book reviews, book club news and giveaways among them.
Go check out writing.ie. It will be constantly updated and you can sign up for the newsletter. Well done to Vanessa and all involved!
