Our writing forums are the place where writers meet

Featuring 5,464,418 posts in 180,105 threads.

At Scribophile, we’re focused on giving each other constructive feedback on our writing. But sometimes you need a place to have in-depth discussion on general writing topics — or a place just to meet people and hang out!

That’s what our writing forums, a core part of our larger writing community, are for. The writing forums at Scribophile are one of the largest writing-oriented online forums in the world!

How our writing forums work

Our writing forums are designed to encourage friendly, polite, and enlightening discussion.

Members start threads about a topic, like “How do I find a literary agent?”

Then other members (like you!) reply with their own insight, starting a discussion that anyone can read, learn from, and participate in.

Browse through years of discussion about writing

Our busy writing forums have more than a fifteen years of discussion archived, with millions of posts across hundreds of thousands of threads for you to discover.

Add your voice to new threads

Anyone can reply to discussion threads to give their unique insight into the topic writers are discussing. The more you participate, the more friends you’ll make.

I’ve made friends, developed valuable critiquing relationships, published my works, built my author platform, and gained lots of confidence, all with the support of the Scribophile community.

Without this community — the encouragement, the critique, the push to be better — I wouldn’t have a debut coming out now. Scribophile changed my life.
