January 2014, I created a group for writers to ask questions and encourage each other on their own goals, projects and ambitions. There is only one rule, no links. Our community is not one for promoting links to your own work, but instead for support, discussion, and friendship. Writers talk about their favorite parts of writing, ask questions about marketing, or just converse about their weekend plans. Today we are over 200 members strong. We have writers of all levels from traditionally published, self-published, and aspiring authors. Some have been writing for years, while others have just started on the writing adventure.
This year we have expanded our community to include weekly writing prompts and word sprints. We hope to have the community continue to grow and expand. If you would like to be part of our warm and welcoming writer’s group please visit the Writers’ Coffeehouse on Google+.
