We are a group of individuals drawn together through a passion for literature, writing, and our interest in the future of publishing. Our aim is to bring together authors, readers, and publishers in an attempt to find new talent while sharing and promoting great writing.
It can be difficult to get your foot in the door with a great publishing company, but we believe that there are many talented writers with undiscovered potential out there. For this reason, we run a line of creative writing competitions to challenge writers to create unique work that can showcase their personal storytelling ability. Authors that are chosen from these competitions will be granted an opportunity to see their works published by Almond Press. Our collections are read by genre enthusiasts from around the world, and this creates an invaluable opportunity for aspiring authors to share their work.
All proceeds from our publications go towards running short story competitions and promoting aspiring writers like yourself.

Support for Indie Authors
Founded in January 2015, this group was initially designed as a way for me to support indie authors by reading their work and featuring them on my website. Since then it has evolved into a valuable resource and support system for authors who have or would like to self-publish.
With the help of some patient and efficient moderators, Support Indie Authors fights to help indie authors rise above the stigma that is self publishing, as well as serves to provide a supportive environment for those who want to share experiences, ask for help, and simply find some friends with common goals.
The Writer's Diet
Dr. Helen Sword's Writer's Diet website and book are full of writing resources and interactive tests, dedicated to making you a more effective and stylish writer. By the time you've read the book, checked out the online test, worked your way through the User Guide on the website, and downloaded and played around with the MS Word app, you'll know at least as much about grammar, syntax and style as you'd learn from any grammar book or course. Also, watch this space! Coming next year: a new online course called The Writer's Diet Makeover!
On the web since 2001, WinningWriters.com is the home of the Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest (no fee), the Tom Howard/John H.
