The Institute for Writers has three blogs serving writers across many genres. Click to access each of them below.


Diary of a Student (A View from the Inside)

After signing up for a course, ICL student Kimberley Moran pitched us a blog series chronicling her experience. Kimberley shares what it's like to take the course Writing for Children and Teens. She completed the course, and posted week by week updates. For a sneak peek inside what it's like to take an ICL course, click here

The Writing for Adults blog is for writers who are writing across many genres, from novels to magazines and online venues. Every Tuesday, our guest bloggers, all professional writers, share advice and tips on everything from where to start to how to revise to where to submit your final draft.
