#StoryDam is a Weekly Twitter Chat for Writers

Each Thursday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, writers from all over the globe meet up on Twitter by using the #StoryDam hashtag. We then chat for an hour (sometimes more!) about our various writing projects.

#StoryDam Twitter chat topics vary from week to week, but we cover everything from writing, blogging, indie publishing, creativity, reading, marketing and more. People are encouraged to bring up any aspect of writing that they need help with. It’s also a lot of fun to socialize with other writers!
