And you’ll experience at first hand what it’s like to be a part of the internet's warmest, friendliest community.

Literary agent Peter Cox. Partially tame.

Agent Inside

Litopia’s founder Peter Cox is a best-selling writer, with two books charting at the No. 1 position in the UK national bestseller lists. Now a working literary agent with publishing and media deals worth millions of dollars. He leads our weekly Huddles.  Not quite tame, but doesn't bite.

Writers need writers. And cats.

Writers Need Writers

Don’t run away with the idea that Litopia is only a sweatshop. It’s far more than that. Writers benefit from mixing with other writers. For fun, for socialising and for mutual support. We’ve grown organically into a genuinely caring community. Be part of it.

Your own private sweatshop.

Desktop Workshop

Workshop your writing without limits in  Litopia's Writing Laboratory.  You choose who sees it and who critiques it.  You delete it when it's done.

Litopia Writers' Huddle. Virtually unbeatable.

Join A Huddle

Join a Writers' Huddle every Saturday. Bring your ideas for titles, your blurbs, your first chapters-in-progress… or just bring yourself and a glass of wine. Informal, in confidence and insanely good fun!

What Our Members Say...

Our Guiding Principles


Writers have always been an easy target for the unscrupulous. Ever more so in the internet era. We think you’ll see the difference here.


The writing life can be isolating. That’s why writers need other writers: for strength and support, and for socialising, too. No better place on the ‘net!


Two decades of serving the writing community.  But we don't live on our laurels. We’re constantly pushing new boundaries. Join us & be part of an exciting future!
