As Writer Abroad edits her collection of essays about life in Switzerland, she is naturally on the lookout for essay markets she hasn’t considered. In her search, she has come across some interesting resources:
If you’re looking for inspiration on how to write personal essays, The New York Times has 10 Personal Writing Ideas to get you started. (Writer Abroad is glad to hear she is not the only one that has used modeling as a method of inspiration.)
On Meghan Ward’s website, Writerland, she has one of the most informative posts Writer Abroad has come across on where to publish personal essays: 20 Great Places to Publish Personal Essays.
Writer Abroad hasn’t used MediaBistro for awhile, but they have a great series on Personal Essay Markets. Unfortunately, one must be an AvantGuard member to read them. Writer Abroad wishes that instead of paying a big yearly membership to read one series, she could just pay a small fee per article.
Anyone else know of great personal essay writing resources?
