NEW WRITING PORTAL FOR IRELAND


There's an impressive new website called writing.ie that is chock full of interviews and information for the aspiring and committed writer alike.

Developed by Vanessa O'Loughlin, with support from the Arts Council, this is how the site describes its aims:

"Writing.ie aims to bring you all the resources you need to explore the craft of writing, whether you always wanted to write, but don't know where to start, or if you're an author looking for new ways to connect to your reader.  Find out about writing events in your area, courses, and get tips from some of your favourite authors.Whether you are looking for tips on song writing, script writing, writing a CV or a press release, we will have it!"

It looks great and should prove to be a valuable resource for many. Worth a look, people.

As someone who has been both self-published and published by established presses I do approve of self-publication in certain circumstances but I wish sites like these would feature a major article on the dangers of vanity presses which increasingly now misrepresent themselves as assisters in self-publication; ripping people off financially, promising commercial and critical success where it can't possibly happen (especially critical success for poetry and fiction publications done with them).
