It must be Monday, meaning it’s time to share with you the various resources, articles of interest and sources of inspiration I have found lately.
I’ll kick off this week’s list with a little poetry, firstly I found these Two by Heather Altfeld over at the new Okey-Panky Magazine (an offshoot of Electric Literature.)
And despite the title, I also liked Smelling the things she dreamed of by Broke-Ass Stuart via Medium.
I also just have to share this beautifully written piece by Andie Fox for the What I’m Reading series on the Meanjin blog.
In terms of resources this list of 52 Things Ideas for Writers by Brooke Warner via the Huffington Post has some interesting pointers.
If you are looking to get published and are not yet following Aerogramme Writers’ Studio then you really should get on that. Here’s a link to their list of Publication Opportunities for Writers – February and March 2015 – they post these regularly. They do round-ups of writing contests too. Well worth a look.
I’m not on Wattpad but I think it’s an interesting concept and definitely not something I’ve ruled out completely. Here’s a nice little introductory article – How to Publish on Wattpad via Writer’s Circle.
And I could not rule this out for pure visual inspiration. Did I ever tell you Norway is very high on my travel wishlist? This might show you why – Norway – A Timelapse Adventure via Rustad Media.
This week I’ve been reading about some of this year’s Academy Awards contenders in Empire Magazine Australia’s February issue and adding to my ever-increasing list of films I need to see. The full list of nominations can be found here.
Are you a film fan? What are your picks for this year’s Oscars?
