r/writerchat is a subreddit for writers where members meet like-minded people, discuss all things writing, and share resources.

The community has a wiki where members can find information about the community's methodology. It also has an "About" section with things you can find in the community, some rules, and guidelines.

Something important is that r/writerchat is focused on providing a space for writers to talk about anything, it doesn't have to be writing-focused. The idea is to share interesting information while helping fellow writers succeed. Both experienced and beginner writers are welcome to join and develop new ideas as well as a support network together.

There is another section called "Chat Assistance". It provides steps on how to join the IRC Chat. The community gives you a direct link to the chat: the only thing you need to do is choose a nickname and start chatting in real time with other members of the community.

The third section of the wiki is full of writing guides and resources. This is a space where you will find different recommended readings, lessons, and tips to engage with writing. The last section is a "Post Series". It contains popular or relevant posts made by community members about writing.

Additionally, r/writingchat has a Discord server. It has general chat rooms focused on writing, reading, and politics. There are also channels to share resources and writing prompts. On top, members can enjoy a section for discussing games, media, and podcasting.
