Online Resources for Writers, The Sequel

Online Resources for Writers, The Sequel

Last month, we posted the blog Online Resources for Writers, which recommended 10 eBooks to inspire you and help you continue honing your writing craft while MCPL branches were closed. Those time-tested electronic resources are still available.

Now with MCPL branches launching curbside service this week, we’re adding five books available from The Story Center Collection to our original list:                  

And because telling stories isn’t limited to writers, we’re suggesting these resources too:

Try your own search of the Library's catalog. If you find something you like, place it on hold with your MCPL Access Pass (Library card). MCPL staff will get the book ready for you to pick up curbside. 

Two things have not changed since last month: The Story Center Collection still includes about 2,500 items that support The Story Center's mission to help people create stories, share those stories, and connect with the stories of others, and Story Center staff are ready as ever to help you explore the Collection and to recommend resources. 

If we can help you find something you need from the Collection to continue creating and sharing your stories, please email Meg Montez at mmontez@mymcpl.org.
