Writer Resource Highlight: Writer's Carnival

What is it?
Writer's Carnival,, a social site for writers--with member space~!

What I do there?
  • share your writing in order to obtain feedback from other writers,
  • enter contests (requires upgraded access),
  • browse for writing prompt ideas,
  • access resources, ...and more~!

Do they publish? Will I become a better writer?
  • They do have an e-zine called "Reader's Carnival" (requires upgraded access) , and
  • They have a classes web, with modestly priced Writer's Carnival Classes.
  • Don't forget the free resources!
  • 15 months old
  • just over 2,000 members
  • more than 56,000 comments.
But I'm not Canadian?!
That's ok, we all have our flaws. They engage their users every day with new content and are growing. They're constantly looking for great resources for their members. Friendly folks, for sure.
