The site aims to be both a networking and profile building platform for authors. A place for writers to interact with readers. A place for readers to find great books. In short, a place to catch “the buzz” about emerging and established authors.
Following on from the general idea that Thanet Creative should be available and open to people where they are, we opened a Tumblr account.
We will share things that have been shared other places already as well as The Muse designs and graphics that we simply have not had room to share anywhere else.
We also share links and other things of interest to writers.
When we find anything that might be of interest to writers on Tumblr then we will do the Tumblr thing and reblog it for you.
As more active volunteers join us, the account will probably receive more frequent attention but questions and suggestions will be shared eventually but not always swiftly.
Thanet Creative Writers have been running Facebook groups since early 2013.
Thanet Creative: Writers
Our writers’ group is used to talk about writing, ask questions, and seek beta readers for feedback on our writing. It is also where our events are promoted. At the start of September 2017, there were around 96 members with 2 to 3 new members joining us each week.
Our current Facebook writers’ group was started after the original one was hijacked but most of our members simply left with us to somewhere a touch safer. We have since learned to be far more cautious about appointing admins.
Anyone may join our group but due to recent spam attacks, we like to talk to new members first, just to see that you are a real person. Talking to new members also helps us understand what we can do to help you as a writer.
Thanet Creative: Poets
This is a low volume group dedicated exclusively to sharing the love of poetry and writing poetry.
This group is where our dedicated poetry events are announced. We encourage others to share events open to the public that take place in or arround Thanet.
