Writing Information and Communities

Sometimes the art of writing seems to require isolation. You always here stories of famous writers going off on some retreat to find themselves and make their books a reality. With New Age technology making it easier to be connected, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. With websites like NaNoWriMo and many more, you can be anywhere with a computer and have a great community to help you with your book woes!


Scribophile:  A respectful community of writers who’re passionate about improving each other’s writing through thoughtful critiques and the sharing of knowledge and experience. Earn points by writing good critiques, and use those points to post your own writings for the community to critique.

NaNoWriMo!National Novel Writing Month. Okay, so it’s a bit more than national—I’m English and NaNoWriMo is a U.S. site, so these days IntNoWriMo would be more accurate. Still, a fantastic venture with a lively community.

SFWAThe official site for Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. Don’t worry if you’re not interested in writing in these genres—this site has some great articles on writing in general.

WritersNetA site with forums where writers can discuss their craft and the road to getting published, and also get critiques from other writers (and would-be writers). Be warned, the folks over there can be quite harsh.
