I'm very slow to respond to emails these days - so I apologize for the late response about our favorite writing websites - but here are some of mine. Hope your class goes well!!
For writing tips, I enjoy gailcarsonlevine.blogspot.com
by author Gail Carson Levine. She answers questions about writing that are sent to her and has great insight. Plus she offers writing prompts that are really good starting points.
For industry and author info, I like cynthialeitichsmith.blogspot.com
by author Cynthia Leitich Smith. I really like her posts toward the end of the week when she rounds up info from all over the industry, plus she's a great source about new book releases.
Agent Rachelle Gardner, rachellegardner.com
, gives lots of great, practical industry and writing support on her blog. The comments are always full of great discussion as well and worth a read.
Every day I visit Anita Silvey's book almanac, childrensbookalmanac.com
. It is full of information about both old and new stories with interesting insights into their creation and authors.
Hope this helps!
