We Return To Writer's Digest's 101 List!
By  IN House Staff

Collectively we've done it again and this award not only reflects the FWO-Int'l but you, our writers, readers and supporters.
TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – The Freelance Writing Organization International (FWO-Int'l) of Toronto, Canada, has the honourable distinction of once again being named on Writer's Digest's Best 101 Sites of the Year List.
As of May, 2007 the FWO-Int'l has been recognized as an enormous and successful collection of writing resource links and accumulated writing information vital to today's writers, authors, editors, and publishers. Even more so than last year!
The announcement of the Best Site of the Year reaffirms the belief that the writing industry needs a centralized, easy-to-use, constantly updated system of resources to support the creative process. Something that only the FWO-Int'l successfully provides without charge.
The FWO-Int'l hosts thousands of writing resource links in a massive online database. They are the publishers of the reknown "how-to" monthly ezine, Inkwell Newswatch (IN) Writing and Literary Ezine for Writers featuring authors such as Catherine Ryan Hyde, Lee Gutkind, Charles Ghigna, Lisa Lenard Cook, Jonathan Kellerman, Philip Carlo and many others in the past.
The FWO-Int'l also offers information on: funds for writers, employment, education, news, submission calls, agents, publishers, a research library, and much more.
The Best Site of the Year Award joins a growing list of other awards that this exemplary website has achieved over the years, including:

  • Multiple Golden Web Awards,
  • A Diamond Web Award,
  • Inscriptions Writer's Magazine Link Award,
  • TuDogs Top Library Resource Rating,
  • IAWMD Web Masters and Designers Award, 

and a host of other honourable and nominated mentions.
The mission statement of this website appears to be an enormous undertaking, however the FWO-Int'l is living up to its self-imposed obligation: "To build the world's largest, free, online writing resource links database system available on the Internet."

Traffic Swarm For Writers

Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
