My favourite platform for Q&A, resource sharing and trading feedback with writers at similar stages of their journey is Discord (much easier to keep up with than Group Twitter DMs šŸ˜‰).

What’s Discord?

A platform hosting private, invite-only groups. Each server has group feeds displayed as hashtags (called channels), organised under Categories, accessed via a single menu pane. I use categories to separate discussion topics, types of feedback and resources shared on my servers. That makes everything easier to find and follow than any other group platform I’ve used.
All comments are displayed directly on the channels (there’s no posts, unlike FB groups, so it really allows multiple people to access, follow and contribute to the same discussion).

I’m admin or co-admin of…
