More website planning!

One of the things I'm keen to have is a writers section, something for authors, aspiring or otherwise.

 

What kind of things would you like to see in such a section? We want to have discussion of industry trends, what's selling and how the industry is treating authors, as well as some advice on the self-publishing market (getting an editor, doing covers, marketing your work and so on). We're also hoping for guest posts from authors, editors, agents, etc, with Q&As and the like.

 

I don't write fiction these days myself and have no real desire to be published so this isn't exactly an area I have a lot of need for but I feel it would be crucial for the site because we really do want to be a literary one stop shop.

 

All ideas are welcome as are volunteers to help with this section in any way one so desires.
