Best websites for writing skills

There is always room for improvement, whether you are looking for a small daily tip or are debating a major conundrum in your latest piece of writing. But where do you go for these writing tips? Here are five websites that we use to improve our writing skills.

Daily Writing Tips

Want to test your writing skills? How about a Grammar or Vocabulary Quiz? Daily Writing Tips has a whole load of tips and advice for those who need a little guidance. Start your day by looking at the new post, and see if you can add some improvements into your writing. Some of our favourites are 20 Great Opening Lines to Inspire the Start of Your Story, Creative Writing 101 and 34 Writing Tips That Will Make You a Better Writer.

The Creative Penn 

Not only does Joanna Penn, AKA The Creative Penn, share her advice about writing (whether you are writing a novel, non-fiction piece or short story), she also has articles about how to do Book Marketing. With 23 books under her belt, she knows what she is talking about!

Free Rice 

This unusual but absolutely brilliant website, Free Rice, will help improve your grammar and language skills, but can also help with various topics such as Mathematics, Geography and Chemistry. For every correct answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to the World Food Programme, meaning a win-win for everyone. Our favourites are the English Vocabulary, Literature and English Grammar quizzes. How many grains of rice will you donate today?  WARNING: it’s addictive, you’ll become obsessed with grains of rice. Seriously. 

Writer’s Digest

With a plethora of writing advice, Writer’s Digest has numerous articles that will help you with whatever writing problem you encounter. The articles are handily divided into three categories; writing goal, level and genre. There are many useful articles such as Why Point of View is so Important for Novel Writers and Writing 21st Century Fiction.


Ok, so Buzzfeed is known for many things and won’t help you solve grammar problems, but it will provide an informative and perhaps inspiring break. Buzzfeed has compiled advice from famous authors that will either help you leaps and bounds or leave you even more confuddled… but inspired all the same. Our favourite is Saul Bellow, number 22 on the list. Who else has woken up in the middle of the night desperately in need of a notepad? Looking for more inspiration? Check out more of our blogs
