"Litopia’s the place to be for all budding writers, who want to truly bloom and thrive. It’s fun, full-on and friendly."

"I firmly believe I wouldn't be published at all if not for Litopia."
"Litopia is my favourite online writing hangout. In fact, nowadays, my only online writing hangout."
"Litopia is the most supportive and welcoming writers' group I've found online. Working alone in my office, Litopia is my break room where I can go to have a coffee, hang out with colleagues, and talk shop."
