Over at the Writing WA website, there is an excellent resource for new and emerging writers. It takes the form of an FAQ list, dealing with common queries such as 'I want to join a writing group. Where do I find these groups?' and 'I've finished a manuscript and want to get it published. What should I do?'
It's a good site to bookmark, because there are so many questions asked by writers and it's great to find so many of them answered in one place!
