Is this page obsolete?

And if so, what should be done with it?

I started Writ to create a community, long before communities existed. At the time, we were the only real writing community anywhere on G+. It was ahead of its time, and it provided a great service. It helped people get together. When communities arrived, I was away from the computer for one week. When I got back, there were ten writing communities, three of which having as many community members as we had followers. Many of our own members joined those. I started a Writ community, but it was too late for that.

At one point in time I was acting as the organizer for all things writing on G+. But it stopped, and so, I am outside of those circles of people out there who engage in writing. And so, this page has no function in my (+Jacob Dix owner and creator)  view.

So what should be done? Leave it here for posterity? Only to have numerous people share to it, join it, etc, not knowing it is a dead network? Delete it?

How Writ Community works

Writ is a public community. Therefore anything you post to the community gets posted public to your own stream. Posting it within the community groups in here for all others to see.

So far we have 10 categories to post within:

Discussion
Introductions
Flash Fiction
Share a link
Publishing
Announcements
Poetry
#NaNoWriMo
non-English
Events

Use your own discretion in which category to post within. 

When you do post, those who go to Writ Community will see updates in read in each category. Those who have not joined, but see this post on the Writ page will notice a link (which leads straight to the community category), indicating that I have posted this post in the general Discussion Category.

What To Do

If you are going to  post a new piece of writing publicly, why not come here and do so in the "Share a link" category? That way, the Writ Community will see it, in addition to your own followers.

Have a flash fiction item you want to share? There's a category for it!

You get the idea. The Community acts like a funnel to bring together our posts in one place so that all things writing can be seen here. Try it out!

Writ

Introductions  - 
 
Writ used to be the largest community of writers with near 800 members. We did it all with a Brand Page. It succeeded despite this, but eventually, the continuous posting just to maintain the ability for followers to comment became tedious. Writ has moved to a Community, and what do I find but flourishing writing communities everywhere! It's quite happy to see this. Writ has decided to move to a community too, to perpetuate the good culture we built.

You can find the community here: https://plus.google.com/u/1/communities/109734651118330028976

This isn't a post to steal members or to compete. I am hoping all the writing communities can work together to make ourselves as well organized and appreciated as is the photography community on G+. I look forward to helping out in any way I can.

Writ

Collaboration Corner  - 
 
At the time +Writ (a page) was created, it was the best thing going for writers on G+. But it required that I (+Jacob Dix) actively post so that others could interact in a pseudo-community of comments!

I am moving Writ to a Community, and am in process of inviting our near 800 members of the switch. I have often thought of bringing publishers and publishing resources into the picture, but it was not possible with a page. With the Writ Community, it will be.

So let's work together!

Writ is moving!

It is clear that G+ Communities is the best option for everyone to interact, independent of my limited capability to post.

I haven't figured out how to get all who have joined this page to also join the Writ Community. So I am sending this initial announcement from the Page to everyone in our circles. I will then send an invitation to a group of 500 initial members, from my own (+Jacob Dix) writer and sci-fi circles.

The group is at this point going to be closed except on invitation. Write or wrong. We'll see how it all goes! I hope you all join me over there, and interact to your hearts content!

I can't seem to send more invite email notifications today. +Micha Fire your circle was next on the list :)

Until then, here is the link to the community: https://plus.google.com/u/1/communities/109734651118330028976

I would like to send out a personal invitation however, so that everyone here gets informed.

Fantastic opportunity to get your teeth in to writing December's short non fiction article for the lovely +Literary+ . The article should be 400- 1000 words long, and be focused on writers and the writing process.

+Jacob Dix here, testing Writ page management from my mobile phone.

This will change the dwindling page activity we have had.

It worked! The google update gives mobile access and management to both pages one owns and pages one manages.

Story
Tagline
The home of writers || writ \’rit\ n [ME, fr. OE; akin to OE wrītan to write]
Introduction
Fiction writers, poets, and screenplay writers need a home. We are setting up camp right here. Who is with us?

To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme. No great and enduring volume can ever be written on the flea, though many there be that have tried it.
