I borrowed the following from Maureen Ryan Griffin's newsletter. Maureen lives in Charlotte where she stays busy teaching classes in writing. She also teaches at John Campbell Folk School and just held a class there. Her book, Spinning Words into Gold, is filled with excellent tips and advice for writers of any genre. She is a good friend and a generous writer.
Lit Drift is a new blog, community, and resource dedicated to the art and craft of fiction in the twenty-first century. Besides its editorial content, Lit Drift offers daily creative prompts, daily short stories, and a weekly free book giveaway. They don't accept submissions for blog content, but they would happily accept material to be featured as a Daily Prompt and/or daily Featured Story. In both cases, they would look for a complete short story or poem to publish on their Web site. Author would be credited, of course, and linked to.
