The Scripturients

The Scripturients

The word scripturient is a term to describe someone with a passion, or obsession, to write. It’s an outdated term, one not found in the dictionary any longer, and used to refer to someone who made their living from writing – in some form or another. Believe me, I had to look it up too. It’s a cool word though, and I wished we used it more. It offers a way to communicate exactly what you mean without an excessive amount of words, and can be used to locate other people with similar mindsets. 

We, after all, are the Scripturients, and my guess is that you’re one too. Welcome to our club.

We’re here to create a community, to connect with our fellow scripturients, and to create the opportunity to learn from each other. Writing is a antisocial occupation by nature, but without the support of others, I fear we’ll all end up living off ramen noodles in a leaky attic somewhere, our skin turning white from the lack of sunlight. Or maybe we’re all vampires.
