The writing journey is solitary, yet it’s something one doesn’t have to walk alone.
I belong to the following organizations.
You want to learn the business of writing?
You want to be a better writer and storyteller?
Join these organizations.  They provide a wealth of resources and support.

Liberty States Fiction Writers
The perfect organization for me. 
The motto?

The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators
THE organization for scribes of Young Adult, Middle Grade and other fiction for younger folk. Amazing support network and resource treasure trove!

Romance Writers of America
This organization is probably the best to learn about the publishing industry and the business of writing.  It doesn’t matter if you write romance or not.  If you want to be a polished pro, join!  Once you join RWA, there are many subchapters to join:  Young Adult, FF&P (Futuristic, Fantasy & Paranormal), KOD (Kiss of Death – the Mystery/Suspense Chapter) and many others!

Mystery Writers of America
The premier organization for mystery and crime writers (their words – and I agree!). Great organization, again, to network and learn the craft of writing.
