Run by writers for writers

A brilliant and supportive environment for you & your writing

Keeping It Simple.

Our goal is exactly the same as yours. We want to see you published ever more successfully. And Litopia provides the tools to do that. It’s really that simple.

"Litopia's honest criticism and generous feedback helped me take the final step to representation by a top literary agent."

"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."

"The strength of Litopia is the people. I’m grateful that I have got to know a wide range of talented writers – in the company of these friendly, helpful and inspiring people, one’s own standard of writing can only be raised."

"Litopia is definitely the most supportive writing forum around."

"Thank you, Litopia! You have inspired me when the muse didn’t flow and I was ready to pull my hair out. You didn’t judge me when my writing was utter dribble, but instead you supported me with your brilliant feedback and advice."

A Place To Grow

Away from the workface, we have plenty of quiet corners for you.  There’s the Back Room, for example.  A strictly private area for members, search engines rigorously excluded.  Say what you want, and delete it when you’re done.

Then there’s the Writing Workshops. A place for you to give and receive essential feedback, confidentially. Control who sees it, and when it’s done, it's gone.

Inside Litopia, you're in control all the time.

You may be actively developing a project, or you may be in a fallow period. It doesn’t matter. You can still be a vital part of the world’s oldest community for writers.  Pull up your chair and let the craic commence…
