It happens to all of us: something or someone looks interesting, you subscribe to their newsletter, and then . . . your inbox explodes. (An aside: we do earnestly hope that you’re subscribing to the IWU newsletter — always short and sweet.)
That being said, your IWU editor has found a few newsletters here and there that seem to have earned their place in one’s inbox. Check them out. You decide.
- Virtual Author & Writer Events, a Substack by Sarah Nicholas, lists both free and paid online events, neatly organized into: For Readers – Free, For Readers – Paid, For Writers – Free, and (you guessed it) For Writers – Paid. There have been some real gems in here. Once a week. You can submit an event. No cost, though there is a Tip Jar available if you find it useful.
- Authors Publish is a very succinct newsletter that comes out a couple of times a week. Again: no fee. For those interested in submitting to traditional publishers (periodicals and houses), they can keep you abreast of who’s open to receiving submissions on what topic. They’re very strict on their criteria, and vet everyone they list.
