W&A Community

The W&A Community contains a host of brilliant features: take part in discussions, join or start groups with like-minded writers, and share extracts of your work to receive objective feedback.

Community engagement also means reward points added to your profile, so expect us to be in regular contact to make you aware of exclusive discounts across W&A events, editing services, and more.

Finally, our free Writing Calendar gives you the chance to make all W&A Community members aware of a writing or publishing event you’re involved in.
