The Codex Writers' Group (aka "Codex") is an online community of active speculative fiction writers. Codex was created in January 2004.

History and Membership Requirements[edit]

Codex was created in January 2004 by Luc Reid, a member of Orson Scott Card's 2001 Literary Boot Camp.[1] The focus of the group is on writers in the early stages of their careers.[2] The forum uses the phrase 'neo-pro', which they define as "writers who've had at least one professional publication and/or participated in one of the top by-audition-only workshops, but who have not yet sold a great many stories or a number of books.".[3]

The following Codexians have won major awards and/or have books on shelves. A more comprehensive listing of publications by Codex Writers can be found at the Codex Library Website.
