Discussion Forums.

If you’ve been looking for a large, diverse group of talented writers who talk about writing and the challenges and successes involved in getting published in a private corner of the Internet, this is it. Over 1,800 members in a dozen countries. One-third of the membership is agented and/or published. Nearly 200 members login to the discussion forums every day.

“Backspace [is] an incredible online writers community THAT YOU SHOULD JOIN IMMEDIATELY! GO! NOW!” – Colleen Lindsay, formerly of FinePrint Literary Management

 
 

Backspace Books

Are you looking for an agent?  Wondering if a particular agent would like YOUR project?  Click on the “Books by Agent” menu item above, then click on the individual agent’s name to see the books they fell in love with and sold! Many of the listings also include comments from the agent explaining what it was that appealed to them about the book.

All of the agents whose clients’ books are featured on the Backspace Books website have supported Backspace’s “writers helping writers” initiative by joining the faculty at a Backspace Writers Conference or a Backspace Agent-Author Seminar.  This website showcasing their clients’ books is our way of saying, “thanks!”
