Most writers today are more familiar with printers and modems than with typewriter ribbons. Personal computers and the Internet are changing the way writers create and communicate. With twenty-four-hour information and instant memory, these modern conveniences are radically altering the face of the literary community.
In writers.net, veteran Internet trainer and best-selling author Gary Gach gives writers of every medium valuable insight into using the Net in many aspects of their writing. From poetry and romance to technical writing and science fiction, Gach directs writers to appropriate forums, magazines, publishers, home pages, and many other resources that will help writers stay on top of developments in their field of specialty. Writers.net also covers the most common uses of the Internet for writers including finding writing assignments, conducting research, improving one?s writing, and carrying on discussions with other writers.For those new to the Internet, Gach provides an Internet Primer for Writers that includes basic terminology, a guided tour, and an essay that puts the Net in perspective for beginners. He also discusses the new worlds of electronic publishing, interactive and collaboratory writing, Net censorship, and cyberjournalism.
"Getting information from the Internet can be like trying to get a glass of water off an open fire hydrant," warns Gach, but with writers.net, writers now have a handbook to help them control the unlimited resources that make up the Internet.About the Author

Review:

Sometimes, you don't want to search the Web for information. Sometimes, you just want to pick up a book and find it there--even if it's for information about the Internet. Webscribe Gary Gach helps out with Writers.net, a handy compendium of websites, search engines, e-zines and a glossary all broken into chapters by interest and genre: playwrights, journalists, mystery writers, etc. The only hazard is that Net info is so quickly outdated, that you'll probably need to log on to Gach's website for updates to the book. So keep that modem tuned!

Review:

"writers.net ups the ante in printed guides to the Net. Neophyte writers in cyberspace will find it as valuable as Magellan found his compass. Experienced voyagers can use it to find whole continents they never knew existed."
--Gerard Van der Leun, co-author, Rules of the Net
