TWITTER CHATS - For Writers

Updated: Mar 3


Twitter (writer) chats are a great way to talk about craft with others, find betas, CPs (critique partners), other like minded writers/authors and potentially friends. The catch? You gotta put yourself out there a little bit. Engage and connect with others not just through writing but through favorite books, hobbies, and interests.


Below is a list of writer chats for all age categories. We will continue to update this list as we learn of more chats.
