Facebook Groups for Authors, Writers and Readers

Why I have joined some groups for Authors, Writers, and readers

While I’m currently working on the editing stages of my debut novel “Reckless Beginnings”, I have been researching groups on Facebook that I may benefit from. With Facebook being the giant of social media platforms, there are plenty to choose from.

How I benefit from these groups

In the short time that I’ve been a member of most these groups, the resources, connections, knowledge, and friendships I have gained through them have been priceless. Each group provides something different that I can benefit from and grow with. When I was researching the groups, I looked for certain criteria that would fit my needs.

  • Connecting with other writers & authors
  • Expanding my writing skills
  • Asking for advice
  • Seeking new ideas
  • Establishing a presence
  • Promoting my website and book
  • A place for feedback on my works
  • Seeking support when needed
  • Daily writing prompts
  • Book suggestions
  • Listening to readers
  • Belonging to a community

How to join a group and become active

Most of the groups are set to “Private” and you need to be approved before being allowed to join. Most will approve you within  twenty-four hours. If you find a group you would like to join: simply click on the tab “Join Group” located at the top of the page, fill out the simple questionnaire if required and you’ll be notified if approved.

Once you’ve become a member, I suggest introducing yourself, offering a little background and why you joined the group and ONLY post your website if the group permits it.  Be sure to read all the rules and respect them.

I usually spend some time scanning the group, reading the articles and posts and seeing if it’s something I would like to be a part of. If it is, I begin to participate and make my presence known by asking questions, answering questions and posting samples of my works or entering writing prompt exercises.
