About Discord Meet-Ups
Discord is a free, platform-independent chat and texting platform, which can be run in a browser or as an app (desktop/Android/iPhone). I’ve set up a server with text and chat channels for different events. It’s pretty easy to use, but if you are not a regular chat platform user, join 15 minutes early for a “meet-and-greet” test chat session.
The text channels are available 24/7, so feel free to stop anytime! 

FREE! — No Membership Required

*Marginalized communities are those who have experienced significant barriers to publication and/or employment in the publishing industry. This includes Black, Asia-Pacific, Latinx, Native, disabled, non-neurotypical and LGBTQIAA+ community members.
