Online Resources

The Web contains many tools, groups, projects, and sites that may be of help in improving your writing. This is a small selection of them.

Browsing the Shelves

Some books on technique, marketing, formatting, etc., can be found on the fourth floor in the PN147s or PS320s. Many books, however, are filed throughout the Ps in their respective author's section.  These can be found most efficiently with the VCU Libraries Search, narrowing by these subject headings:

  • Fiction -- Authorship
  • Poetry -- Authorship

Works about screenwriting and playwriting are found under a number of different headings, though VCU Libraries has less of these works than for fiction and poetry.  Word searches for "drama and authorship," "motion picture and technique," or similar will return useful works.
