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.

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

How To Participate In Our Live Events

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

I'm feeling chuffed. Nothing to do with writing, but with my other hat on, I've had a minor success. I was asked last night to find help for a young Syrian refugee who has ended up in Montpellier. I wrote an appeal, and this morning a British woman with a Syrian husband living in Montpellier contacted me with the view of helping this lad. :) Human nature at its best!
Sent out of town this week...likely more travel in the coming weeks. Pretty much stuck on mobile for now. :/
I'm in my little getaway in Portmadoc from Friday to get my creative juices going. I'll try my darnest to get back for POP-UPS that always liven up my Sunday evenings :)
