The Whole Writer

No two ways about it: writing is a sedentary and isolating occupation. However, writers don’t have to be unhealthy - especially if we help each other by sharing our hints, tips, advice and encouragement – even recipes and workouts – to make the writer’s life a healthier and happier one.

Writing Wiki

Looking for authoritative advice about the business and practice of writing? Look no further. This carefully-curated area is a read-only, information-dense resource for all writers. And if you still have questions, then ask away in Café Life.

Litopia Live Events
All the information you need in order to participate in our regular live events - do take part!

How To Join Live Events On Our Discord Server

It’s easy – you already have all the equipment you need…

Pop-Up Submissions

Pop-Up Submissions are broadcast live on Sundays at 6pm UK time on Litopia’s Facebook page – so bookmark it and visit it a few minutes before we kick off.

We broadcast in high definition, which allows you to maximise the picture to full screen. And don't forget to turn on the audio so you can jhear what's happening!

In addition, and exclusively for members of Litopia, our Discord chatroom (see below) will be open for the entire duration of the program. This allows you and your fellow Litopians to chat with each other - text only, not audio.

Seminars & Other Events Just For Litopians

Events just for Litopians are generally not broadcast on our Facebook page. Instead, we use our Discord chatroom for members to participate in both text chat and live audio. Here’s the link to go directly to Litopia’s Discord server. You’ll need to sign up for a free account.

https://discord.gg/kCvbnY3

Make sure you click on the “litopia_text_chat” channel… and then start chatting!

IF YOU NEED ANY HELP SETTING UP DISCORD WITH YOUR COMPUTER, PHONE OR OTHER DEVICE, SIMPLY ASK IN THE HELP FORUM!

What's Happening

When you are literally up until 5 am just to complete that chapter@
A vanity press contacted me and tried to get me to send them some of my work to publish. The catch? I’d only get paid a commission by shilling the anthology to friends and family. I sent them a rejection letter. :P
Now working on Book Two and I've got some very exciting stuff in the pipeline... !
What is your favorite Android manuscript or ebook writing app?
On tomorrow's Pop-Ups we have: Cold War Espionage from Miles, Historical Fiction from Kent, Fantasy from Alix, YA dystopian from Philip, Literary Fiction/Bildungsroman/LGBT from Nemat, and YA from Terezia.
