100 Sites for Fiction Writers: #83 - Scribblerati

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.


As a fiction writer, do you ever feel a bit lost over at Facebook and Twitter? With millions and millions of members, many of which are not regularly interested in fiction or writing or even books and e-books, such sites might seem daunting to some. Wouldn't it be cool if there was an online social network just for writers?

Guess what? There is. It's called Scribblerati.

Created by author Lia Keyes, Scribblerati sets out to be just what it claims, an online social network for writers of all genres.

As might be expected, the site contains a Forum, Chat, a Blog, and an area about Groups. To access any of these links at the site, membership is required. Also to be found here is the latest News concerning publishing, as well as information about Lia, including photos. There is also a list of Events.

Some might grouse that this site is just another a writer has to keep track of, but keep in mind Scribblerati is specifically for writers. This is not like every other social network site out there. Here one does not have to wade through millions of members to find those with similar interests. At Scribblerati, you can be assured there will be members who share many of the same interests of yourself as a fiction writer. All genres of writers are welcome, so no one should feel left out.
