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.

  2. Laura Said:

    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! 🙂
