Ready to make a living as an author? Full-time author Joanna Penn explains how to manage the business side of your writing habit. Great list you have here. I belong to a quite few FB writer groups but most are travel writing related. The focus of the group is on writing and editing of blogs, books, memoirs and short stories, but we also talk about how to incorporate social media, entrepreneurship and publishing into our greater writing goals. Each writer has the opportunity to workshop writing, plus receive feedback anytime on shorter pieces, newsletter and the like.

My sincere thanks for that. Just need some advice here. Any place for political and military writers that is willing to pay for an article? Kickstart Kitchen is no more, but people interested in the book club can sign up on YFE. I tried to go to the site and got this site does not exist. It seems all they want to do is sell classes. Thanks for the kind shoutout to The Literati Writers in this fantastic list! Even as the guy behind the group, I totally agree with you that, at first glance, the price tag we carry seems steep!

Over one year and 75 Literati Writers later with an average membership length of 7. And getting paid for their writing. How do I join such groups? I also noticed that many still had very low following or very little interaction. I recently found some that may be a more success. Writers Helping Writers has grown in the last two years from 6, to more than 27, members. But you can still sign up for email subscription. Thanks so much for including my Create Your Nomadtopia group on this list!

My primary location-independent business is Nomad Editorial, offering writing coaching and editing services, so I heartily agree that writing and editing offer the perfect opportunity to be location independent! I really have no more to add to the conversation in terms of how awesome this is.

So, kudos for finding a unique topic to write about as well as some awesome suggestions for new Facebook groups to check out! Very fortunate to be part of the Writers Bucket List group. I definitely recommend the email list since the group is closed. Extremely useful list, Kelly! Kudos to you for doing such great research. This is a free but closed group, you will have to ask to join.

We have several talented writers from aspired authors up to seasoned professionals. We have published two anthologies so far, and submissions are being accepted for the third.

We support one another through Facebook, Twitter snd other social media, as well as Goodreads. I checked out their website and facebook fan page though Thanks, Kristina. Thanks very much for this great list of groups — very helpful.

Great post, as usual, full of good information. My FB writing page features prompts that can be used for writing.

Can you tell me. Oh, I guess I should post my info. Since blog is newly born. I welcome feedback for improvement. Thanks so much for including Write on Online in your list! Welcome to all the new members who found us here. Interesting list — not come across pay-to-access groups on Facebook before. I thought I would also add my group to the list Marketing for Authors. At nearly members, we are a community of writers, editors and publicists that share information with each other on the tricky aspect of marketing our books.

Every post is vetted by a team of amin so the main page is spam free and book plug free. Businesses offering a service can place a permanent advert in our Business Directory within the group.

The more you learn about this vast, exciting website, the more fun you will ultimately have each time you log in. I still am quiet and still find it difficult to communicate with people. However, since joining this site, my confidence has grown a tremendous amount. I have had work published , I have done a whole term in an English course and won an award for student of the year. All of this in little over a year. I believe this has been made possible through joining WDC and I hope it will continue for many more years.

If you want to write, this is the place to do it! I have received some of the most helpful, kindest reviews since I have joined some three years ago. Thank you for letting me reveal my soul and pour my guts out to you guys. Please post questions in our support forum.
