“There is one myth about writers that I have always felt as particularly pernicious and untruthful—the myth of the “lonely writer”. Unless the novelist has gone utterly out of his mind, his aim is still communication, and communication suggests talking inside a community.” – Flannery O'Connor

We offer a lively program of events with special guest author sessions, literary agents and publishing professionals to help writers feel more connected to the publishing industry. With our weekly program of events for writers online, you'll make new writer friends from all over the world.

“The main thing is to surround yourself with others who are writing so that it feels normal. When you see other people writing, you know you can do it, too.”

Tayari Jones, winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction.

Dogs of The Novelry


“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.” – Milan Kundera

Writing is better with a snout about. We're a shamelessly dog-loving group of writers.
