“Creativity is Allowing yourself to Make Mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to Keep!” S. Adams

Do it Yourself MFA is a pretty unique website. The founder Gabriela Pereira graduated with her MFA and then decided to give all that ‘knowledge without college’ to all the other self-taught writers. She deconstructed the MFA program into three basic areas: Write with Focus, Read with Purpose, and built your Community.

Her company has it all: FB group, online classes, challenges, articles, and an encouraging newsletter.

Authors Publish website is dedicated to helping authors advance their writing careers. In their newsletter, they sent lists of traditional publishers seeking submissions, in addition to useful articles on writing.

Winning Writers is a website that sponsors four poetry and fiction contests, but also publishes information about other contests. They seek strong literature pieces, which are focused on diversity.
