- Update!!! Review by Tanja Crouch
I wishing could edit or delete my above review because now I am enjoying the benefits of the service. What they don't explain is you will receive a NEW password in 3-4 days that you input to upgrade your subscription for access to additional resources. I tried several times and wrote to Writers Digest then a day or two later I received an email with a new pass code to enter. I'm still discovering resources but it is now proving worth the investment.

- If you are new to writing you need this ! Review by Michael
I am a fairly new author and currently have 3 books in the works that I am attempting to write. I am loving every bit of it and the real reason that I have 3 books underway at once is for when I hit a flat spot and need a break. I just jump on one of the other 2 and keep going but keep my priority one the primary, or number one book at all times or I would never finish it. This works for me but not for everyone.
I would give this a much higher rating but I haven't been in it long enough to do that yet. Secondly, although there are plenty of free things to be had, there are even more that you have to pay for.
The prices seem to be a little heavy, at least for me, however, they say you get what you pay for.
I wouldn't want to tackle this great new addiction for writing I have developed without the VIP membership or even the regular membership for that matter. (VIP is better, hint, hint) It has been my guiding light for most of what I have learned so far. The only exception is what you get by just digging your heals in and start writing. You don't even need to start at the begging, remember it's your book and you can do what ever you can imagine or feel the need to get on paper.
Just get it done, because it's not like you are taking a chance of learn too much is it ?

- False advertising Review by Tanja Crouch
The main reason I signed up was to have access to the agents database--however, you still have to pay an additional monthly fee for access. I've been looking around the site for the additional access but I haven't come upon anything I didn't previously have access to before paying the additional fee. I'm glad I subscribed to the magazine--I love it--but the additional fee for VIP access seems to be a waste of money. I'm going to continue looking around, if I don't find something worth it, I'm still within my time for a refund.
Bummer--I was looking forward to using the resources touted.

It is a fantastic offer, but why do you not have the same for your international subscribers as well? You can always omit the free postage :)

I haven't been in the program long enough to have utilized its benefits, but I'm sure I'll like it! What's not to like?

- Misleading Review by Byatt
I have not found any benefit for paying $49 for this "resource'. Stick with the paper magazine!
