WRITER’S DIGEST NAMES PAGEONELIT.COM A TOP 101 WEBSITE FOR WRITERS
The Writer’s Digest, the source for information on writing better and getting published, has just named its top 101 websites for writers. For the third time, PageOneLit.com is on the list.
The Writer’s Digest, published since 1920, is the most respected publication for writers, which makes this recognition highly prestigious. The Writer’s Digest selects its top 101 sites by analyzing staff favorites and visitor nominations. In naming PageOneLit.com as a top 101 website for writers, Writer’s Digest recognizes that this website offers writers—and readers—the best resources on the Internet.
Established in 1994, PageOneLit.com was the first online literary newsletter and ranks first in Google searches for literary newsletters. The site publishes author interviews, book reviews, and literary news. Visitors may also participate in writing contests, visit websites for authors and other writing resources, and read authors’ reflections on writing. PageOneLit.com owner says, “I want people to keep reading so writers will keep writing.”
The most popular feature of PageOneLit.com is the section on new books. This is the “home for authors to market their books,” says Weaver, an industry expert in book promotion and publishing. Here, visitors find book synopses and interviews with the authors of new books. Author and novelist William HazelGrove says, "Pageonelit has led the way in Internet based literary websites."
The Writer’s Digest also named PageOneLit.com as a top 101 site for writers in 1999 and 2001, and honored the site with the 2000 National Zine Publishing Award. PageOneLit.com has been featured by the USA Today, N.Y. Times, and Chicago Tribune newspapers.
