Our goal is to provide you with advice and encouragement to write better.

Over the years, The Writing Cooperative has grown to one of Medium’s largest publications. With many components — including our Facebook Community, Podcast, and more — we want to ensure we’re still meeting our goal.

Please give us five minutes and tell us what you think. Not only will your opinions help shape the future of The Writing Cooperative, but we’ll give you $5 off our So, You’re New To Medium course as a thank you!

New Series

We’re excited to announce two new ongoing series added to our lineup. Check these out starting soon:

Popular Prose by Eric Pierce

Tuesdays at 3:00 pm EST

Popular Prose is a bi-weekly series by Eric Pierce that interrogates popular culture for ways to improve our own work, be it the craft itself or why we write in the first place. What can Captain Jack Sparrow teach you about writing? How can playing Dungeons & Dragons improve your craft? Why is Justified a masterclass in dialogue? (Intrigued? These examples are from previous articles.)

Writer’s Toolkit by Melinda Crow

Saturdays at 11:00 am EST

Whether we’re talking books, apps, websites, classes, or methodology, the proper tools can help you turn your writing goals into reality. Each week in the Writer’s Toolkit, we’ll explore devices, mechanisms, and aids (like the synonym finder I just used) designed keep your words flowing. Besides taking deep dives into the pros and cons of popular writing advice and services, we’ll also help you tap into your muse and clean up your prose using devices readily available inside your own head.
