What Is the 5 AM Writer’s Club and How Can It Help YOU?

What the heck is the 5 am writer’s club?

You may have stumbled upon the hashtag on Instagram or Twitter and wondered this, especially at the beginning of your writing journey.

While the name is pretty self-explanatory, I wondered the same thing myself. Were people really waking up at 5 am to write?

That’s a yes! And there are a few reasons why. But first, let’s understand what the purpose of the hashtag is.

5 AM Writer's Club


What is the 5 AM Writer’s Club?

The “club” is for writers who want to make time to write. While it’s called a club, it’s actually just a hashtag writers use. (However, you could totally start a real club if you want to!)

They wake up at 5 am on weekdays, sometimes weekends, and they write. They use the hashtag to connect online with and support other writers who are participating.

How can the #5amwritersclub benefit you?

  • ProductivityWhile you might not be a morning person, if you work a full-time job or have a family, it can leave your creative juices dry by the end of the day. Waking up and writing first thing in the morning can definitely help you reach your writing goals.
  • Peacefulness – Imagine beginning your day with a fresh cup of coffee and silence. Well, except maybe the sound of birds singing outside your window. But who’s complaining? 
  • Community – Go ahead and tweet that it’s your first time participating in the 5 am writer’s club. Make sure to use the hashtag. There’s a good chance you’ll be overwhelmed with love and support from your fellow writers. If you start waking up at 5 am and use the hashtag every day, you’re definitely going to make a friend or two! I don’t know about you, but that definitely would make waking up easier for me.

    • You can use it on Instagram 🙂 I also just discovered a Facebook group called “5 AM WRITERS CLUB”

    • Hi Riya!

      I went ahead and edited this blog post since I realized it was a little confusing. Even though it’s called a club, it’s actually just a hashtag that writers use to connect and support each other online. So anyone can participate in it whenever they want 🙂 But if you want to start a club, you totally can! My Instagram is @writtenbybella_
