The Internet has spawned many websites that promise to help new writers, but I can honestly say that is one of the best I’ve found.

No costs involved - it’s free and can I say a very much “stress free” site that offers new and aspiring writers cartloads of help, encouragement and inspiration, all in an easygoing, easily assimilated fashion.

Competition listings for short stories, poetry and other creative avenues are updated regularly, and Mervyn Love, its creator, is constantly adding to the pages for links to other writing sites. He makes me laugh, too, with his dry humour.

There's a comprehensive article archive that has proved very popular, as are the sections on Software for Writers and Writing Courses. If you have any questions about those little computer or Word for Windows problems that pop up with exasperating regularity, there’s a special section where you can find answers to these and other writing head scratchers.

WritersReign also offers a free Article Writing Course. Visit: to sign up.
