Despite being a big fan of Twitter’s #WritingCommunity, my favourite platform for Q & A, resource sharing and trading feedback with writers at similar stages of their journeys is Discord.
A platform with invite-only groups. Each server has group feeds displayed as hashtags (called channels) and organised under Categories, accessed via a single menu pane. I use categories to separate discussion topics, types of feedback and types of resources shared on my servers.
I’m admin or co-admin of…
