Twitter for Writers

So Twitter has become an amazing tool for writers. It’s one of the places where I have met some of the most amazing writers, and learned a lot about writing. There are countless ways to get involved with twitter so I wanted to create a list of hashtags that can be joined in on to gain some great writing input in twitter.

First hashtags:

About writing: #amediting #amwriting #WIP (Writing in Progress) #writegoal : These hashtags are a way for writers to post their progress with writing, editing, etc.

#writing #writers #poets #writetips : These are for general communication with other writers, great to use with relevant links, tips, etc.

  1. It’s unfortunate that most of these events are organized with ET in mind. As a European, that means most of them happen in the middle of the night.

    • Judy Black Said:

      That is very unfortunate. I know you can still find a lot of the transcripts for the discussions online, but it’s not the same as participating in them. I’ll see if I can find any more European friendly chats and send them your way! ❤

    Yesssssss thank you for posting these! I catch some of them some of the time, but mostly it’s just me checking my twitter and deciding I can stay for an hour or so rather than me actually scheduling anything. :/ Thanks again! 🙂
