About The Writing Cooperative

Launched in 2014, The Writing Cooperative provides a community for writers of all genres. We’re here to support, encourage, and help you write better!

Founded in 2014 by Jessica Jungton and Justin Cox, The Writing Cooperative is a global community with over 230k followers on Medium and thousands of members in our social groups.

What began as a publication with writing advice developed into a weekly newsletterpodcastFacebook Group, and LinkedIn Freelancing Group. We provide all of these services free to everyone. All of our services are managed by The Writing Cooperative co-founders Jessica Jungton and Justin Cox.

The truth is, keeping The Writing Cooperative going is time-consuming and expensive. 

We don't run ads on our publication. While we occasionally highlight affiliate links for ProWritingAid and Freelance University, we try to keep all marketing to a minimum. Our goal is fostering community, not selling products for others.

To continue providing the same level of support and encouragement our community expects from The Writing Cooperative, we need your support.

Pledging through Patreon provides The Writing Cooperative with financial support that improves our services for all writers. Thanks to our current patrons, we've hired one editor to aid Jessica and Justin with submission evaluation. This enables our founders time to develop new ways to support and encourage writers.

With additional patrons, we can expand our editor's hours and potentially add another editor to speed up submissions and free Jessica and Justin to expand what The Writing Cooperative provides. Your pledge, regardless of size, benefits writers around the world.

Goals
$432.12 of $750 per month
Due to the number of publication submissions, it often takes a week (or more) to process everything in the queue. When we reach $750 in monthly patrons, we will increase the contracted hours with our editor, so submissions are evaluated much quicker.
