Bibliophiles! Book lovers! Book Fanatics its our day dedicated to the one common friend that we love i.e., BOOKS 😀
We could have listed and recommended you the top and best-selling books or the books that we love! But today we thought why not we celebrate it in a different way, in an uncommon way.,
And that’s by giving a special mention to the Writing Communities, all of them being already widely known, out of these few of them are apps, few take submissions through their dedicated links and few just pick the best ones through their dedicated hashtags on Instagram.
You might be wondering! What? Why Writing Communities on the World Book Day? What’s the connection? And here’s your answer… Becauseeee…
An Author, in a layman’s language anyone who writes, be it a novel, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, prose, quotes, a collection of writings, is called “Writer” and these communities give a platform to the emerging writers and we strongly believe that these amazingly, talented,writers who pen down their thoughts so eloquently may be the future Authors of the upcoming Books.
Imagine the amount of the books we, the book lovers will have the options to choose from to read, ENDLESS!! 😀 #bookgasm
And these communities that we are giving a special mention about, are the ones who inspire the writers, and publish them, feature them through their online platform in various mediums.
In our recent poll on Instagram we asked the writers and poets to name their favourite communities and here are those few (tch tch our favourites added 😉 ) which we take the privilege to highlight the information about those few communities and their founders, so that book lovers, readers who love to read, readers who are interested to read but just the short writing pieces, poetry and quotes or the long written captions, new writers, amateur writers, avid writers, basically writers of all kinds and readers of all kinds, can follow them and indulge on to the beautiful, raw and all kinds of writings of the featured writers through these Awesome Dedicated Writing Communities.
