Helping each other write better: It’s not just a slogan, it’s our mission statement. The Writing Cooperative provides ad-free content to over 140k followers and 10k unique daily visitors to our publication dedicated to writing, editing, publishing, and the creative process. We also offer the ability to submit articles about writing (and even earn money) and a 3k+ member Slack community where writers collaborate and network with peers. All of this for free.

But to continue maintaining and growing this community, we need your support. Becoming a patron of The Writing Cooperative means you’ll help us not just stay alive, but thrive. In exchange for your support, we’re offering exclusive perks for different levels of patronage.

Our mission is simple: Help each other write better. Join us.
