The SWG Yellow Pages are a directory of online groups and websites that pertain to Tolkien and writing. We have established and maintain the SWG Yellow Pages as part of the Connectivity aspect of our group's Mission. We recognize that the SWG is a niche group that cannot possibly meet all of the needs of its diverse membership base. Therefore, through projects like the SWG Yellow Pages, we seek to help our members and guests connect to other groups within the larger Tolkien and writing communities.

Anyone may submit a group or site to the SWG Yellow Pages. Owners/moderators of a group may specify what they wish to have listed for summary and contact information. In the event that a group is submitted to the listing by someone other than the owner/moderator, the SWG loremasters will use information publicly available on the group's site to compile the summary and contact information. Whenever possible, summary information will be taken directly from the site so as to appear in the group's "own words" (versus those of our loremasters, who do their best to remain objective and have a tendency to be bland as a result). Owners/moderators may request at any time that this information be updated or the listing be deleted, but it is their responsibility to contact SWG with such information at yellowpages@silmarillionwritersguild.org.

Groups listed in the Yellow Pages will have their group/website listed under each category for which the group is eligible and will be included in our alphabetical group index with the group's name, url, a summary of the group's purpose, and contact information, if available.

Guidelines for Submitting Your Group to the SWG Yellow Pages
