Writers’ Huddle Forum: Join Our Supportive Writing Community

Do you struggle to find the time and motivation to write?

Do you wish you had a bit more encouragement with your writing?

Do you want to share and celebrate your writing progress?

Then the Writers’ Huddle Forum is for you. It’s a private, supportive online forum just for writers. You can join under your own name or a pseudonym if you prefer, and you can talk about writing with the people who really get it: other writers.

The Writers’ Huddle Forum will reopen for new member registrations in late January. Enter your email address to join the waiting list, and you’ll get an email alert before Writers’ Huddle opens publicly.

Members’ Forums

Writers’ Huddle is built around our members’ forums. They’re private, just for members of the Huddle. They’re a safe, supportive place to share your writing hopes and dreams, to ask questions, and to get support and encouragement.

I’m in the forums nearly every day to answer questions, cheer you along, and hear about how your writing’s going.

Some highlights of the forums are:


Different Interests

We have forums covering fiction, freelancing, blogging, and more.

Through these, you can get to know other fiction writers, freelancers, or bloggers. You can share tips and resources, or run ideas past your fellow writers.

Regular Q&As

I’ll often jump into forum topics and you’ll see me around in the forums a lot.

However, if there’s a particular question you’d like me to tackle, justpost it in the monthly Q&A topic. Each month, I’ll answer these in detail.


Feedback on Your Work

We have a specific “Feedback” forum where you can post work-in-progress.

This is a fantastic way to get feedback before you send out a story, finish an article, or publish a blog post.

“I love the challenges as they’re short and focused and helpful. I also love the weekly check in even though I feel I always say the same thing at the moment!”
– Writers’ Huddle member Ruth Jarvis

Why I Created the Writers’ Huddle Forums

I’m Ali Luke: you probably know me from my blog, Aliventures, or maybe from my writing for another site like ProBlogger, Copyblogger, The Write Life, or Craft Your Content.

For over two decades, I’ve been part of various writing groups and writing friendships. In all the areas in which I’ve worked  fiction, freelancing, and blogging  I’ve found it hugely encouraging to be in the company of other writers.

I’ve designed the Writers’ Huddle forums to be a private, supportive online space where you can talk about anything to do with writing.

Unlike massive public forums, you won’t get lost in the crowd here, and you won’t face spammers or any nastiness from other members.

Instead, you can share your hopes, dreams, fears, and struggles … knowing that you’ll have support and encouragement from your fellow Huddlers.

You’re also welcome to seek feedback on work-in-progress, if you want to. I know this can be a daunting step, but it’s also a powerful way to pinpoint the areas of your writing that need a little more work.

I hope the forums help you grow as a writer, get support when you need it, and enjoy sharing ideas with other writers too.

Membership is just $7.99/month.

There’s no minimum commitment and no ongoing contract. Once you join, you can stay as long as you like and you’ll always pay the $7.99/month rate, even if I put up the price of Writers’ Huddle memberhip.

If you live in the UK, you can either pay the dollar rate, or you can pay £5.99/month.

Currently, all payments are through PayPal.
