Rita’s Resources for Writers

“A violinist had a violin, a painter his palette. All I had was myself. I was the instrument that I must care for.” –Josephine Baker

Every writer needs his or her tools, and if you are a writer, you are no different.

This page presents my compilation of writing resources that I have acquired over the years. The compilation is an ongoing work, so check back often to see what I’ve added.

As with everything else in this life, “let the buyer — or in this case, the writer — beware. In other words, do your homework. Check out resources, competitions and the like for yourself, and know who you’re dealing with.

Enjoy!
