Post Historical Biography Forums?
May not be the right spot for this but...

I'm writing a historical biography, which can be a lonely process because there don't seem to be any forums dedicated to this.
There seem to be lots if you are writing a novel or even about your own memoirs.

I know that some of the group members have written or are writing such biographies.

My question is: Do you have forums etc. where you compare notes and support each other?
If not, I'd like to see one formed.
If you agree we should look into it.

Thanks for your time.

Charles

I'm guessing you have probably looked at Absolute Write, if you've found a lot of forums?
If not, there might be a few people in the Nonfiction or Historical forum categories with similar interests.

Most of the forums I looked at had a self-publishing bias I think.
Shows I wasn't thorough enough!

Many thanks for the link to Absolute Write, Alison.
It seems to cover everything.
