20+ Online Writing Communities For Authors



Writers are generally people who write in solitude, but they are not really alone. When it comes to writing, there are many, many supportive events, groups, and professionals to assist them, including writer retreats, author associations, and book shepherds. There’s also a ton of help available from online writing communities.
