A number of years ago, the term ezine was quite popular online. It is not quite as popular today. Does that mean that writers canít find good ezines or newsletters to help them hone their craft and find markets to sell their prose to? Not at all. It simply means more digging.
To help you past the digging stage of endless searching online, I have compiled a list of ezines and newsletters that still offer good content to help you in your writing.
BellaOnline Nonfiction Writing Site Newsletter:
I publish a weekly newsletter for my Nonfiction writing site here on BellaOnline.com. I will be bringing you tips and how-to information on every area of nonfiction writing. My goal is to hunt down all the information and resources you need for your nonfiction writing career. I love feedback so please feel free to tell me where you need help.
