The writing game can be a lonely one, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, working with others can improve your writing tremendously. And one way to achieve that is through online writing groups.
It can be quite tricky finding fellow writers nearby to meet up with. You may take to Google and search for “writing groups near me” or hunt out a local writing club. But unless you live in a major town or city, it’s probably going to be difficult to find writers nearby.
Thankfully, the internet has made life a whole lot easier. There are hundreds if not thousands of online writing groups, online fantasy writing groups, online scifi writing groups and so many more.
No longer do writers have to sit alone in their bedroom reading work aloud to their cats.
But it still can be quite difficult to find the right online writing group for you. Over the years I’ve joined loads of them and I’ve gotten to know some wonderful writers.
I decided to compile a list of online writing groups. Reddit is a good place to look for communities of writers. You could check our writers forums too.
Or you could join my own exclusive writing group accessible only to people who join my community of writers. We’re a tremendously engaged and friendly bunch who help each other out any way we can.
It’s a space to share writings, discuss ideas and theories, and ultimately, a place to build friendships and your writing network.
To join, just click the button below.
Most of the groups you’ll see on the list below are online fantasy writing groups. They tend to be based on Facebook. Despite its many flaws, Facebook is a good medium for groups.
Some groups are writers forums, UK and US and even worldwide. Others are more general online creative writing groups. Some are writing groups for beginners too, and others are dedicated online writing critique groups that focus on fiction pieces.
If you found this resource helpful, why not consider joining the community? All subscribers receive a bunch of welcome gifts, including a free copy of Thoughts On Writing, lists of fantasy publishers, and a list of book reviewers. Simply fill out the form below!
