A Delicate Dance: Writing About Mental Health
By writing fiction, nonfiction, books, articles, stories, poems, and songs that address mental health, we take a stand toward the recognition of mental illness as socially acceptable and treatable. By doing so, we help readers seeking information and/or empathy.


Answers to Questions Regarding Writing Contests
I always had questions about contests and to find out the answers about them I asked my husband, who was a former editor. He used to judge contests and knew all the answers.

A riveting story of good and evil… Social commentary, historic reflections, a brave new world of science, mixed with wit and one-liners. A truer-than-fiction peek into a future headed our way. ~Highlands Today (Sebring, FL)

A very good science fiction thriller that entertains and challenges. ~Daily Tidings (Ashland, OR)

The Business of Writing

Writing on a Theme
Many publications publish their theme lists and seek freelancers adept at writing on specific topics. Some of these same publications often print an entire issue on a single theme. In other cases, publications provide a list of themes or topics that they would like to receive on an ongoing basis.

Effective E-books
As a contracted author at a publishing house, you don't worry about setting the price of the book you've written. But as a self-published e-book author, understanding what the market will bear when it comes to pricing your e-book is crucial.

Treat Your Body Write!
Writers seem to live in states of anticipation and dejection, interspersed with small moments of happiness. It's the whole submit, rejection or acceptance cycle the publishing world casts on us—and we accept—as we don the title "writer." (READ MORE...)
