About Us

The Writers’ Collective began in 2008 as Fictionista Workshop. It was founded to create a supportive community of writers, editors, and readers, hoping to assist the online writing community through various projects and programs. Writing can be a lonely and frustrating process, and people who enjoy  writing and reading are often eager for opportunities in which they can interact with others. Having a ready pool of other writers, editors, and readers available for immediate discussion and feedback when needed can be extraordinarily helpful. For that reason, we developed three different programs: WitFit daily writing prompts, the Writer Collective, and the Workshop.

The Workshop is our most intense program and offers an in-depth, twelve-week critique of a finished manuscript. Writers’ Collective tries to run at least two Workshops a year. If you are a writer or a reader who might benefit from an intense, collaborative effort focused on a single manuscript, please click on the link on our home page.

WitFit is our wildly popular daily writing prompt that anyone can sign up to receive. “Write every day” is one of the best pieces of advice given to writers. No other practice challenges the mind, provokes the imagination, and does so much to encourage a writer to continue practicing their craft.

The Writers’ Collective is a small writing group that meets once a week for twelve weeks with a moderator and reader to hone the writer’s skills in a non-threatening, intimate environment. To find out more or sign up, please click on the link on our home page.

Each program is based on volunteers who offer their time simply because they love to read and write. That is why we call ourselves the Writers’ Collective. As a volunteer-run organization, Writers’ Collective would love to welcome you to our programs.
