    There’s also a great online forum called AbsolueWrite Water Cooler (www.absolutewrite.com/forums/), it has a very active and vibrant non-fiction forum and free-lance writer’s forum, a special area set aside just for query critiques, agents, editors and successful writers (as well as newbies and everything in between) hang out there (over 20k members).
