If you’re a regular visitor here, you may have noticed a change in our masthead.
I’m delighted to announce that the Horror Writers Association has joined the Mystery Writers of America in providing additional support for Writer Beware (our main sponsor, of course, is the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America).
We’re thrilled to be collaborating with another professional genre writers’ group to further Writer Beware’s mission of educating and empowering writers–all writers, new or established, regardless of subject, style, genre, or nationality. Together, we’ll continue to work to make the publishing world a safer place.
Victoria Strauss, co-founder of Writer Beware®, is the author of nine novels for adults and young adults, including her Way of Arata epic fantasy duology (The Burning Land and The Awakened City), and a pair of historical novels for teens, Passion Blue and Color Song. She has written hundreds of book reviews for publications such as SF Site, and her articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest and elsewhere. In 2006, she served as a judge for the World Fantasy Awards.
She received the 2009 SFWA® Service Award for her work with Writer Beware®, and in 2012 was honored with an Independent Book Blogger Award for the Writer Beware® blog. She’s webmistress of the Writer Beware® website, which she also created, and maintains the Writer Beware® database, blog, and Facebook page.
