Community Doesn’t Just Happen
A writing community is important for all writers. It is no fun to write alone and writing alone does not push you to think and stretch and grow. Belonging to a community of writers can help you do things you never thought possible. It is more than the feedback you receive as a writer, it is also reading the work of other writers and helping them craft their work. It is engaging in talks about writing and words and writers. As humans we crave community. We learn better in communities. We achieve more in communities. That is why writers need a community to support their growth.
