Twitter-hashtags-WhereWritersWinMay 11-15, 2015 are the dates for this year’s Twitter Fiction Festival, sponsored by AAP, Penguin Random House and Twitter. Margaret Atwood, Jackie Collins and Chuck Wendig are among many authors taking part in the unique virtual event. Each author is assigned a time slot to live stream their work and insights on Twitter.

The Festival will also host a competition for aspiring writers. There is an open call for submissions beginning March 2. Follow @twfictionfest for all things #TwitterFiction.

Here’s a closer look at a few of the participating authors, and their Twitter handles. For fiction authors, this is a great chance to connect, as well as to learn from these greats. Who do they follow? Who follows them? (Their fans may just be your readers, too!)

    Looks like all the twitter addresses below Anna Todd link back to her, rather than to the ones indicated. Weird.
