Welcome to Litopia – the net’s oldest community for writers.

We’ve been helping writers to achieve their ambitions for over two decades.

You won't be pressured to buy extortionately-priced writing courses here. Nor costly seminars, editorial consultancies and the like.

We don’t hawk those things. Because mostly, they simply don’t work.

Here in Litopia, you'll develop your core writing skills in exactly the same proven way as writers always have done.

By working together. By giving and receiving critiques. And by having a really good time along the way.

Many of our members say we’re the warmest, friendliest community on the 'net, bar none.

You may even develop lifelong friendships with other writers across the globe.

Take the next step to achieving your writing goals.  Sign up now.  There are no hidden extras.

  • Extraordinary Value

    Hands-down the best value for writers on the 'net

  • Unrivalled Facilities

    Unlimited access to our writing seminars, unlimited critiques, live weekly 2-hour Writers' Huddles and so much more

  • For All Writers

    We do NOT turn writers away: our free membership is always available.

You're In The Right Place To…

In some ways, there’s never been a better time to be a writer. In other ways, it’s never been more confusing.

We can help give you a clear understanding of your own, personal route to publishing success… Whether it’s by taking the traditional publishing path, or by helping you to evaluate some of the newer options now available.

Developing your own, personal writing voice and style is perhaps one of the most satisfying – yet challenging – achievements you will ever attempt.  We hear you.

And we’re here for you. With the best seminars in the business. And, of course, our weekly 2-hour Writers’ Huddle. Plus the Writing Lab, our monthly Craft Chat, and so much more.

Litopia has pioneered author-to-publisher contact. We don’t do this by charging by the hour (or minute, in some cases!).

Instead, we’ve got one of the most experienced literary agents in the business right here, always available. And every Sunday, Full Members can join the live chat with publishers and established authors on Pop-Up Submissions, the YouTube show that’s now in its third successful year.

pop-up submissions

Pop-Up Submissions lets you be a fly on the wall while literary agent Peter Cox and his guests from the publishing business react to your writing.

Every week we look at four submissions, giving real-time sentiment analysis and honest but supportive feedback on title, blurb, writing craft and commercial potential.

Never before has the manuscript submission process been so totally transparent!
