What are Writing communities?
This list of communities is dedicated to writers of all kinds, from aspiring beginners to seasoned professionals. Many of our writing communities offer support and constructive criticism if you're looking for more eyes on your work.
About Online Communities on Reddit
Reddit communities (or "subreddits") are forum-based groups on the popular social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website Reddit. Reddit is commonly known as "the front page of the internet". Users submit content to the site such as links, text posts, and images, which are then voted up or down and discussed by other members.
r/booksIn-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres, or publishing in a safe, supportive environment.
r/WritingPromptsWriting Prompts. You're a writer and you just want to flex those muscles? You've come to the right place! If you see a prompt you like, simply write a short story based on it. Get comments from others, and leave commentary for other people's works. Let's help each other.
r/writingDiscussions about the writing craft.

r/worldbuildingFor artists, writers, gamemasters, musicians, programmers, philosophers and scientists alike! The creation of new worlds and new universes has long been a key element of speculative fiction, from the fantasy works of Tolkien and Howard, to the science-fiction universes of Burroughs and Asimov, to the tabletop realm of Gygax and Barker, and beyond. This subreddit is about sharing your worlds, discovering the creations of others, and discussing the many aspects of creating new universes.

r/WritersResearchThe goal is to enable authors to create realistic characters. Like real people, every fictional character has an occupation (even if they're homeless... they *do* something) When an author can't find info on what that occupation is like, their writing suffers.
