38 Google Plus Communities for Writers

Google+ is a resource many writers overlook, in part because Facebook and Twitter were already established long before Google came along with its social media platform. The truth is that Google+ is not as versatile, or as easy to navigate as either Facebook or Twitter, and Google's recent simplification has not made it any more competitive.

All of that being said, Google+ still has a great deal to offer writers in the form of communities. There are dozens of active writing communities on Google+, spanning everything from poetry, to self-publishing, to blogging.

I've listed below the communities I have found most useful as a writer, but there are many more. You can find a full list of all communities here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/discover
