+ You can mix with like-minded people (writers and authors) and get great advice and tips for yourself+ Writer’s communities are generally a safe place to be as a new author, away from the over-critical+ You can ask to have your book reviewed / critiqued by established writers and to give you some expert advice
+ You can use these writing communities to reach out to others and further market yourself and your books
Ok, my list is actually fairly long so I'm just going to provide the links to some more of these great writing websites, forums and communities.
Well what do you think? Do you know of any other good quality writer's websites or online communities worth joining? Maybe you run your own? Let me know.
