Favorite Sites
We hope you'll find some of these sites-among our favorites for writers, editors and communicators-useful. If you can recommend a favorite site of your own, please let us know what you like about it.

LINK TO FACTS, NEWS AND NONSENSE -- Back in 1995 when people were comparing the Web to a library with all the books scattered on the floor, a family therapist in love with the Dewey Decimal System started an online reference desk. Today the home page of Refdesk offends the eyeballs with its multiscroll bounty of blue links, but it offers one of the Web's most comprehensive reference sites, including links to current news. You can check the day's headlines, click to breaking news or to your favorite newspapers and read Dave Letterman's top 10. People visit the site the way they would a library's reference desk, asking where to go to find specific information or advice. Among the many topics are maps, biographies, databases, encyclopedias, government, law, population, weights and measures and world religions. The language section includes a grammar/style page. It has dozens of links, plus six on proposal writing. The links include such disparate ones as William Jennings Bryant's selection of the world's most famous orations, a Latin grammar aid, a "jargon buster" courtesy of Oxford Dictionaries, several university writing sites, grammar help, heteronyms (words spelled the same but having different meanings when pronounced differently), tips on writing letters of recommendation and numerous articles on writing. Just as in a library, you may be tempted to browse as you search for your facts.

WINNING IDEAS FROM APEX

HALLOWED GROUND
Hallowed Ground -- Summer 2011 -- Mary Koik, Civil War Trust, Washington, DC ... "Beautiful photo spreads, striking typography, a layout jam packed (in a good way) with photo sidebars, usefully long captions and well drawn illustrations -- the design is equally matched by well written, interesting narratives which easily hold the reader's attention."
