The Muse Online Community for Writers!

The Muse has been finding ways to adapt to and thrive in the virtual sphere for the past year; one of our goals, both online and in person, has always been to create a community space for writers. To that end, we are excited to present… The Muse Writers Server, our very own Muse Discord server! This is a virtual space for all members of the Muse community to chat, write together, and generally hang out. Join The Muse Writers Server!
If you don’t have an account, the link will prompt you to create one – it is fast and easy. If you’d like to learn more about Discord and how it works, there will be more information once you join the server using the above link; you can also check out the Beginner’s Guide.
