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.
Be Part of the Publishing Process
When you join Litopia, you become part of the POP-UP SUBMISSIONS Genius Room.
Your opinions – and your votes – decide which submission wins each show. The monthly winner then goes straight to one of the UK’s leading publishers for serious publishing consideration. It’s a new route into the publishing business that we’ve successfully pioneered… and you’re at the heart of it!
Literary Agent Inside
Litopia’s founder Peter Cox is a best-selling writer, with two books charting at the No. 1 position of the national bestseller lists. He’s also a working literary agent representing some of today’s most respected authors, having negotiated publishing and media contracts for his clients worth many millions of dollars.
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!
The Rules We Live By
Your success is our success. We’re here for you – both the highs and the lows of your writing life.
We don’t rip off writers. Full Membership costs only $9.95 a month, even less if you pay yearly.
We don't live on our laurels. We’re constantly pushing new boundaries for writers: with our live weekly YouTube shows, our podcasts, and much more. Join us & be part of the future!
