100 Twitter Hashtags Every Writer Should Know

12 March 2013 — 32 Comments

100 Twitter Hashtags for WritersHashtags are one of the most important elements to successfully using Twitter to enhance your writing practice and profile. In fact, the importance of hashtags generally was recently demonstrated when the American Dialect Society recently named hashtag as the word of the year for 2012.

Hashtags allow you to find new readers, connect with other writers who share your interests and to find out about new opportunities such as writing competitions. They can also help to raise your writing profile to attract interest from publishers and editors.

You need to be smart when using hashtags – don’t over use them (never use more than 3 hashtags per tweet), be natural and never spam people. But when used selectively and cleverly, hashtags can be of great benefit to your writing career.

Below are 100 #hashtags that every writer should know:

  1. Missing from genre: #horror

  2. #Flashfiction and #Drabble are conspicuous by their absence.

  3. What is “drabble”? I’m guessing similar to flash fiction, as you mentioned them together?

  4. I have mentioned Drabbles in a couple of my posts – I find the format quite refreshing, plus they are worthwhile for those of us with time constraints (not that they are any easier to write).

    I’ve added a couple of sites for your perusal. Happy hunting!
