To find fellow writers and join a Writing Group, check out the "Writing Groups Assemble" forums. There, you can request to join a Writing Group and secure an invitation from a Writing Group Administrator.
To create your own Writing Group, go to the My Groups page and click the button labeled "Create a Writing Group". You can then recruit members through the forum linked above, or by typing in usernames on your new group page.
There is no limit to how many Writing Groups you can join, so your options for building community are limitless!
What do I do if someone in my Writing Group is posting abusive content or spam in the message board?
