Another Honor for Writer Beware

Once again, the Writer Beware blog has been chosen as one of Writer’s Digest’s 101 Best Websites for Writers (the list appears in the June 2012 issue of the magazine, and can be downloaded here if you’re willing to subscribe to the WD newsletter).

Writer’s Digest compiles this list annually from nominations submitted by the public. This year, more than 4,000 nominations were received, a record number.

Congratulations to our sponsors Science Fiction Writers of America and Mystery Writers of America, which also made the list, and to all the wonderful websites, resources, and organizations included in this highly useful resource.

Just to note: Writer Beware will not be participating in Writer’s Digest’s Affiliate Program, which pays a 12% referral bonus on sales from the WD online store, and is offered to everyone who’s included on the 101 Best Websites list. To avoid conflicts of interest, Writer Beware doesn’t host advertising, participate in referral programs, or accept donations.


  1. It must be very encouraging to the make such a prestigious list – congratulations!

    I also like your stance on advertising affiliations – nice one.

  2. Cool! And I love your disclosure, too. That is really nice to see. It makes it clear to everyone that you are a REAL resource, not someone trying to make a buck on us poor, struggling writers.

  3. Congrats! Well earned.

    One note: your second link downloads the 2010 version of the "101 websites" list.

  4. Wow – you guys really do get some bitter anonymice here ^_^

    Congratulations on such a good week!
