Twitter on publishing revisited: authorship and writing
Last summer (2011) I wrote a series of posts reviewing Twitter accounts that provided useful sources of information on:
- writing and authorship
- language and editing
- the book industry supply chain and readership
- the creative economy and IP.
Twitter doesn’t stand still for long. It is time to revisit and refresh those reviews.
In the first post of the series, covering Twitter accounts on authorship and writing, I recommended Elise Blackwell (@EliseBlackwell – and her creative writing account, @scMFA) then and continue to do so now. Similarly, Emma Darwin – though I should note that she no longer uses @itchofwriting: all her tweets now come from @emma_darwin.
To these, I’d like to add a third – @TextandAcademicAuthors, the account for the Text and Academic Authors Association. Their tweets are consistently informative and constructive, frequently offering direct advice for authors.
I’ll revisit the other four posts in the series in due course.
