As a relatively new user of Twitter and a new writer, I’ve been learning about the opportunities to share works-in-progress and other writerly “stuff”. I keep writing them down in various notebooks, or useful backs-of-envelopes, until I lose them/chuck them out (no disrespect to David’s A back of the envelope calculation blog intended there). And then, in a #secondthoughts piece about #1linewed, David mentioned it might be a good idea to gather them all together in one place. So, here it is … and I hope it will prove useful to more than just me.
As you’ll see, this is very much a work-in-progress. Please add information about those I’ve missed, any new ones, correct my mis-interpretations, or those no longer current.
My particular thanks to Free Writing Events who not only tweet this information daily, but so much more besides. So, for information on pitch parties, of writing competitions, twitter chats and the like – check out the twitter account above, or click on their site.
