If you still live nearby during the summer, why not stop by The Sullivan Library and look at some issues of the magazine The Writer?
This magazine is full of tips for your writing, including short stories, novels, freelance and magazine writing, and more. For example, here is a sampling of the June 2010 issue:
6 Tips for Writing Young-Adult Novels by Nora Raleigh Baskin
Journaling Without the Journal by Michelle Wildgen
Harness the Power of Line Breaks by Marilyn Taylor
When Setting Becomes Character [interview with John Berendt] by Sharon McDonnell
Writing for Military Magazines by Roy Stevenson
How I Write by Daniyal Mueenuddin
There is also a Markets section which offers “listings of agents, literary magazines and publishers, as well as family/parenting and children’s magazines”, and a section on Self-Publishing success tips.
