Worth Checking Out

EcoLit Books

A wonderful community driven site dedicated to environmental literature. This is a sure way to find your next great read.

New Pages

If you’re a writer, this site must be bookmarked.  A central repository of literary magazines, publishers, calls for submissions, contests, and other good things. Not just worth checking out, this should be a weekly stop on your virtual meanderings.

riskylengths.com

The very worthwhile blog of a local writer and good friend. He pays attention to all the cultural news items Mindy so aptly ignores.

Poets & Writers

There are so many great writing resources out there, nitty gritty circulars like Writers Ask or anthologies like A View from the Loft, but this bimonthly mag is near the top of the list. It’s got a little bit of everything to keep you current, or current enough, and the merry-go-round faces of Very Serious Writers on their homepage is just fun to watch.

Ashland Creek Press

Paving the way for eco-lit writers and readers everywhere! Their blog is a bit addictive–you can’t read just one entry.

The Loft Writer’s Block

The Loft Literary Center, a mecca for writers in this neck of the woods, puts out a well-rounded blog geared toward writers in all different stages of their craft.

Paper Darts

One of the newest lit mags to hit the pavement in the Twin Cities. The only magazine you should read as much for the eye-popping art as the writing.
