LinkedIn groups for writers

I’ve been having so much fun (in my copious free time when not banging the keys for the current book) on LinkedIn that I wanted to share with you a list of some groups for writers that I’ve found and recommend. All of these are excellent resources for writers of fiction and nonfiction, for technical writers, for people looking for writing jobs, and for people who want to find out more about publishing.

To find any of these groups, log on to your LinkedIn account, go to Groups, and search for the group name. You may find a lot of these if you simply search for “writing” or “publishing” in the Groups list. You’ll certainly find other groups worth signing up with.
