About the #WritersRoad

In the vacuum created by the loss of our favorite chat years ago, a friend, Tee Tate, and I created the #WritersRoad. We also have a Facebook group, though the live chat occurs on Twitter (via Tweetdeck is one of the easiest apps to use).

Tee and I co-host this chat the first Monday of every month on Twitter at 6:00pm Pacific Standard Time (9:00pm for our east coast friends). We chat about everything related to the writer's road. We decide on a topic based on the needs of our chatters (suggestions are welcome on both Twitter and our Facebook group) and we announce it the weekend before on Twitter. On the off weeks that we don't chat, we engage in #WordWar (still using the #WritersRoad hashtag as well), an hour long writing sprint where we check in at the end with out word count and encourage each other along the way.

We often have outstanding guests be they authors, agents, editors, or another type of publishing industry professionals. This is a great opportunity to network with other writers or agents, perhaps find a critique group, learn about the craft of writing, or just enjoy the support of our fantastic writing community. This chat is often trending so be ready for a hopping time!

Please note: We are ecstatic that #WritersRoad has become a common hashtag on Twitter now, used for many things besides the chat. Thank you to all who have made us a household name! We only ask that you refrain from using the hashtag during the chat on Monday's for things that aren't related to the chat. Any other time, we are honored.
