ResourcesNeed to know how to format a manuscript?  Want to know the hot trends in New York publishing?  Looking for writing inspiration, tips and instruction?  You’ve come to the write place.  In addition, this is also the place to find archived articles, interviews, and PPW NewsMags.

We want to be every writer’s go-to place for information about writing.  So we’re building a resource library with articles on the craft (things like plot, character, and how to write a top-notch beginning), the business of writing (topics like self-publishing and query letters), and the Writer’s Life.  We’re also including helpful “reports” from previous PPW workshops so writers unable to attend can benefit.  Plus there’s a slew of back issues of PPW’s former bi-monthly publication, The Pikes Peak Writer NewsMagazine.  And don’t forget to check out all the news, info and advice at PPW’s modern answer to the NewsMag, the PPW Blog “Writing from the Peak.”

Stop back often and browse our Resource articles, because we’ll add lots more to this library.  If there’s a topic you’d like to see, please use the form on the bottom right to send us a note.  We’ll do our best to roll out articles on the topics you most need.
