Folder Agents & Publicists: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly  

There are fewer bad literary agents and agencies than there are good ones, but a bad one can sure stink up a writer's career. If you've had a good or bad experience with an agent or a publicist, let's hear about. Did your agent get you an awesome book deal or did he or she try to take you for a ride, and asked you to bring your checkbook with you? Maybe an agent gave you an excellent rejection (they do happen!), and you want to share it here. Be factual and honest, but most of all, be professional.

Folder Online Content Sites: Highs, Lows & Just So-So  

The online content writing sites are relatively new on the publishing scene. Did you get burned when one folded? Did they change the terms of service and steal all your money and/or content? Have you found one that is better than all the rest, with awesome editors? If you've had a good or bad experience with an online content sites or writing job boards, let's hear about it here. Give your writer friends a heads up, good or bad! Remember, be factual and honest--glowing praise without specifics appears spammy, and calling names and insults isn't professional. Tell us what happened and why your experience is either positive or negative.

Folder Publishers & Printers: POD, Self, Vanity, Trade--Oh, my!  

Who hasn't heard the PA horror stories? Is your publisher just the best, goes over and above ordinary to extraordinary? If you've had a good or bad experience with a publisher or printer, help protect your fellow writers or help lead them in the right direction. Give your writer friends a heads up, good or bad! Please keep it factual and honest--if it was bad, tell us why it was bad, and avoid name calling or anything that might tarnish your polished professional author image.

Folder Contests, Awards, Prizes: Questions, Concerns, Scams  

Did you find out the hard way that Poetry.com says everyone is a winner? Did you send in a large fee for a contest, only to find out you had to pay for your prize? We have a separate section for good contests here, so if you hear of a dud or have been taken by a bad writing contest, give us a heads up so no one else gets burned, and the bums don't get anymore money! Remember, be factual and honest, and above all, profession.
