Writer On Line: If you want a chuckle at the irony of
writing and submitting work, only to be rejected and rejected
again, read my "Hamlet's Soliloquy for Writers,"
featured in Writer On Line's "Web Lite" section. Let me
know what you think! If you like it, let the editor, Terry
Boothman, know! End of Shameless Plug.
Roland Baric's Bookroom: Roland Baric, a Croatian writer and webmaster, has started a site for writers and other creative people. Roland needs writers to submit poetry, letters, essays, or stories to post at his site. Visit his charming pages and drop him a line. Tell him Jo sent you. Be sure and check out Thea's latest poetry submission.
HERE ARE THE NEW LINKS:
Famous Author Feature of the Week: Martha Gellhorn: Martha Gellhorn was an award-winning war correspondent
and author. That she was Hemingway's third wife is only PART of
the story. A very interesting woman, whose writing is
characterized by tight, well-written prose and startling imagery.
Visit this site to learn more.
Jeeves: An intelligent search engine.
Just ask Jeeves any question and it will search the web for
answers. For instance, you could ask Jeeves: "Who won the
world series in 1937?" He'll find the answer for you. You
could also ask: "Who is the world's foremost authority on
duck calls?" Jeeves will search and give you a multitude of
options. Great for researching for your articles, research
papers, or satisfying your curiosity.
