Is It A Cacophony of Writers?

Attending the Rockingham Writers Conference this weekend, I thought what a gregarious and chatty crowd we were. So different from the stereotypical introverted, social outcasts we are supposed to be.Taking notes was only part of teh conference mixign and mingling was as well.

Individually these were people who admitted to self-doubt, imposter syndrome, insecurity, fear of failure and fear of success.

That day though, all that was put aside, and we had a ball, laughed and talked mingled, shared expertise and gossip. I left the conference buoyed with confidence and thrilled with my writer tribe.

Sharing a common interest forms a bond.
What is the collective noun for a group of writers?

Then I began to wonder what a group of writers was called. I couldn’t recall an official term, so I did an internet search. I got  ‘a worship of writers. ’  To me, that seemed more fitting for priests, so I began to think of collective nouns for writers.

Here are some I  liked

A chapter of writers.

A procrastination of writers

A draft of writers

An insecurity of writers

An imagination of writers

A  scribble of writers

A cacophony of writers

A gossip of writers

A journal of writers.

 

Do you have a favourite term for a group of writers?

Let me know!
