Welcome home!

No more searching the internet.

No more being hussled into buying over-priced courses, seminars or editorial consultancies.

No more being treated like a punter.

This is Litopia. The net’s oldest and best colony for writers. Where writers come first. Where books – and careers – are launched.

Oldest writing community on the net - by far

A Genuine Community

We’re the oldest community for writers on the internet, bar none. While others pay lip service to the notion of  "community" (looking at you, Mr. Zuckerberg!) we're the real thing.  We have a vibrant collegiate spirit. Mutual support is part of our ethos.

Whether you’re actively developing a project – or going through a fallow period – Litopia is your new home.

A Place To Grow

Away from the workface, we have plenty of quiet corners for you.  Such as The Back Room.  A strictly confidential area for members' private thoughts: search engines rigorously excluded!  Say what you want.  Delete it when you’re done.  Your words are your own property here.

Workshop Your Writing

So your work-in-progress is coming on nicely. That’s great! But what’s next?
You could pay an editor or writing coach for an opinion. Some of them are fantastic: many of them aren’t. And they may cost you a small fortune.
Alternatively, bring your work into our Writing Workshops where you’ll discover the power of the Litopia method of mutual critiques. Your writing will thank you for it: so will your wallet.

Have A Huddle

Litopia has pioneered the concept of the Literary Huddle.

Every Saturday for an hour or two, we meet virtually. Bring your ideas for book titles, your draft blurbs, your first chapters-in-progress… or simply just bring your good self and a glass of wine. It’s informal, in confidence and great fun. If you write – you should Huddle!

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."
