Schoolbag: packed. Pencils: sharpened. Your commute: busier - it’s that time of year again.

Summer is starting to fade slowly into autumn. And we find ourselves feeling the same way we do every year. No, not an impending sense of doom about winter. Open. To new opportunities. Perspectives. Connection. 

And what better way to embrace the new than with community? Slack is the place to join new conversations, find new connections and seek new perspectives. Here are some of our favourite groups.

Online Geniuses 
Are you an agency owner? Get access to exclusive sessions with industry professionals. VPs, CMOs, freelancers. This is an online hub for SEO and digital marketers.  

Nomads Talk 
They say “A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving” so if you’re a freelancer this one’s for you. Each channel focuses on a different city, where you can find other nomads and build connection. 

Creative Tribes
Chat with strategists, marketers, graphic designers, and content creators. Look out for the #remote_workers channel to connect with other WFH creatives.

Ladies Who Strategise
If you’re looking for an online community of female-identifying and non-binary strategists, look no further. Ladies Who Strategise is offline too: happy hours and Taylor Swift concerts are all included. 

The Wordsmiths 
The Wordsmiths is Sonder & Tell's own online community for writers, strategists, brand-builders and beyond. There are over 600 of us who love to talk all things brand. Watch out for our #i-did-a-thing channel, #wordsofwisdom when you need help, advice and opinions, and weekly #creativeprompts to train your creative muscle.

UpWorld (previously CopyClub)
This one’s for inquisitive marketers, looking for fast answers to tough questions. Get exclusive access to events and mentor-matching services if you choose to upgrade to a paid membership. 

Looking for work in marketing? SuperPath’s worth joining. With over 21 channels, there’s loads of space to find opportunities. Check out #content-strategy-questions for support from other industry professionals.

Slack. It’s the messaging platform that “connects people to the information that they need”. An escape route for endless meetings, it’s an easy, efficient, accessible way to communicate between teams. But more than quantifiable productivity improvement, Slack has become a space to foster community. Not just connecting people to information, but connecting people to people.

You’re creating your own Slack community, what’s the Slacktiquette you’ll enforce?
