    Contribute to our resources!

    The writing resources at Worldsmyths are member-contributed and we're always looking for more stuff! There are a number of different categories to submit resources to, of course, and within those categories there are different types of resources that we commonly accept. (We're always open to out-of-the-box suggestions too, so if you want to do something you don't see here, let us know and we'll see what we can do!)

    Guides: This is possibly the most daunting type of resource, but we love when members who have particular writing strengths (like dialogue, or characterization, or developing political systems, etc) develop helpful guides for other writers to reference during their writing process.

    Resource Lists: If you've got a lot of go-to writing resources for a particular element of writing, we'd love you to share them! Maybe it's as broad as worldbuilding checklists, or as specific as map-making tools or plotting strategies... if you've got some similarly-themed writing resources assembled, feel free to compile them with a quick description of each and submit them for other fantasy writers to use!

    Reviews: We're not talking book reviews, exactly - more like reviews of existing writing resources. Maybe you've used Scrivener and have some idea how to lay out the features and the pros and cons. Maybe it's a different type of resource! If you want to take the time to review it, we'd love to see it. Note that Resource Lists and Reviews can be combined! It doesn't have to be an in-depth review per item on your list, either. Have fun with it!

    Reflection: We're also interested in blog-style reflections on an aspect of writing, as long as there's a central theme or goal in mind for the reflection that might help other writers in their writing journey!

    Reference: Do you know a fair amount about a niche topic that might interest fantasy writers, such as weapons, horses, politics, geography, etc? Put together a reference! Brownie points if you include reference links.

    We welcome all members to submit resources to our community! However, they are moderated. Once you submit a resource, the staff will read over for things like typos, accuracy, etc.

    Any questions? Comment below, PM the staff, or otherwise get in contact with us!

    I've been collecting a lot of writing books--on character and plot lately. I'd be happy to post a list of those, maybe with some reviews of them if people are interested? I also follow a lot of writing blogs, that I'm happy to list/link to.

    That sounds great! For physical books especially reviews would be great. People can check out links for free easily, but checking out books takes more work, so it’d be good to have an idea what’s in the book and how helpful it is as a resource!

    Alrighty! I'll start typing something up, and submit it as soon as it's done 😄
