The 540 Writers Community Offers:


Come find your writing BFF!
We’re a diverse group of writers of all ability levels. Everyone is welcome. Writers find lifelong friends in the
540 Writers Community.

540 Write-ins

Write with friends.
Our 540 Write-in Zoom link is open 24/7. No one writes alone. (Unless you want some space—then, well, okay.)

540 Weekly Meetings

Learn something new.
Authors, editors, publishers, and other industry experts bring conference-level education.
Thursdays, 7-8:30 p.m. ET.


Don’t give up.
Exhaustion. Another rejection. Writer’s block. Impostor syndrome. We understand, and we’re here for you.


Find answers here.
Post writing-related questions in our Facebook group or in the 540 Writers Community blog. Our members are happy to help you learn and succeed.


Just keep writing.
Finishing a book (or even an article) requires discipline, tenacity, and DOING. We’ve all felt we’re barely treading water at times, but we band together and pull each other along.


Do something new.
Some of our speakers offer opportunities to write for a publication or speak on a podcast. Enter a contest. Apply for a conference scholarship. Volunteer.

Virtual Hugs

540 is home for writers.
We’ve worked hard to create a warm, welcoming, encouraging vibe. We cheer each other on and celebrate successes. We support each other. You’re not alone.

Did we mention it’s free?

Our Mission and Vision

The 540 Writers Community—a faith-based 501c3 nonprofit—exists to educate, encourage, and equip writers to create clean, clear, compelling, life-changing content.

The 540 Writers Community seeks to help underserved writers overcome barriers by providing free, accessible opportunities to learn and to hone writing skills. We offer conference-level writing education, community for writers, and connection to writing-related resources.

Want to help a writer?

Can you imagine being the reason The Chronicles of Narnia series exists? Great writers like Lewis, Tolkien, and Sayers succeeded—at least in part—due to supportive community and accountability.

The 540 Writers Community serves writers who experience barriers to education. Finances. Caregiving situation. Disabilities. Exclusion. Please consider helping us help writers. Gifts are tax deductible.
We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers and donors.
