Writers & Money ~ What A Lovely Affair


Are you a writer?

Do you know one?

Are they rich?

So much these days in the press about writers and money

I published a post back in 2011 called, Simple Question ~ Can Writers Make Money?, and said that it depends on what kind of writer you are

So, for instance, a writer who wants to devote their life to fiction but would like to make more money might want to consider freelancing in some form of reality-article hacking

As far as fiction writers achieving monetary success, in the past post, What Are A Writer’s Odds of “Success”?, I said:

“Who made it seem success wasn’t merely the next stage, from which further action becomes possible, but rather a pinnacle of achievement that leaves all other contenders breathless on the sides of the conquered mountain? So, who did that? Business people? Fundamentalist religious folk? Football coaches?”

But, in spite of the slim odds of fiction writers having a string of blockbusting books, they can, by working very hard, make some decent money.

And, thanks to my Best Friend‘s gentle reminders, I’ll share some resources from one of her favorite sites.

It’s Poets & Writers, been around since 1970, and their mandate is to serve poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers.

And, even though you could take that last link and find what they call “Tools for Writers”, let me put the links right here :-)

Literary Magazines On Twitter


My best friend is a true fan of Poets & Writers magazine.

Here’s what they say about themselves:

“Poets & Writers, Inc., is the primary source of information, support, and guidance for creative writers. Founded in 1970, it is the nation’s largest nonprofit literary organization serving poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers.”

And, here’s their Twitter address: @pwlitmagster

Some folks might think it strange to direct those who explore literary magazines to their Twitter stream—being literary in 140 characters?

Here’s what Poets & Writers says:

“If you’re looking for news from the literary magazine universe, these twenty-five feeds offer frequent updates about the writing they’re publishing, the events they’re hosting, and the news they find interesting.”

And, before I list those feeds, I’ll urge you to go to P&W’s article, Twenty-Five Literary Magazine Twitter Feeds to Follow, to read their descriptions of these magazines; though, some of you might want to just click the first link in each pair of links below and explore the magazines’ sites before signing up to their Twitter feed with the @-link :-)
