FIVE: Being A Part Of A Writing Community Is Essential

FIVE: Being A Part Of A Writing Community Is Essential

A Lesson by Carrie Ann Golden

Writing can be a lonely endeavor.


Writing tends to be a lonely endeavor which is why finding a community of writers is important for your success, and not to mention for your sanity!

They could be found in your local towns or cities, or online.

There are many ways being in a community could help you as a new writer:

  • A community is a place where you can have your questions answered.
  • A community is a place where you can find support and accountability.
  • A community is a place where experienced writers will share their valuable expertise and help guide you through any difficulty you might encounter.

Your Assignment:

If you haven’t done so before, check to see if there is a writing group in your area.

Many groups could be found in a local library.  MeetUp is another tool to search for local writing groups.

If none are found nearby, online groups are the other option. Here are a few places to check out:

    Facebook Groups

    Camp NaNoWriMo

    Insecured Writers Support Group


Your task is to search for one writing group/community to join.

Did you find one?

If you did, why did you choose that one?

Being in an isolated place, it's often hard to find writing communities. That's part of the reason I joined this site! However, I'd love to learn more. Reddit seems like a good option, but sometimes it's overwhelming to think about getting established in one, or it's difficult to break into established communities online. Does anyone have any more great options for online writing communities? A database of websites could certainly be a helpful resource!
