Wilkie Martin - Surviving Publication


Author of the unhuman series of addictive comedy cozy mysteries set in the Cotswolds. This documents my encounters with publishing and includes things I hope will be useful later. It also covers some local writing competitions and reviews some writing events.

twitter hashtags for #writers and #writing

As a newbie on twitter I've found a few hashtags useful to search on when looking for writerly tweets to see whats happening in our world of literature. I found quite a few different tags being used and as I'd like to keep a list of these where better than by putting them, and sharing them, in a blog?

So far, I have found the following:

#amwriting
#askagent
#author

#bookmarket
#books

#writegoal
#writetip

Thank you Lisa.
I've also noticed there are some chats organised on Skype - with the notice given (I think) on twitter in the #bookmarket tag.

And also #dearpublisher for addressing publisher directly for feedback on books. See http://www.thebookseller.com/news/124028-publishers-praise-twitter-for-reader-feedback.html

As well as #askagent, also try #writechat and #scribechat.

A nice one to follow is #fridayreads where you tweet your latest read.
And for the festival of writing this year use #fow11
