If you want a community, you should define what kind of first.

Your friends: invite them.

Topic related: invite the people you know and announce the instance on places this community hangs.

Location based: invite the people you know and announce the instance on this place, using online and offline tools.

You can invite people who hang on other literary communities, pointing the advantages of the fediverse. But we already have some communities as that on fediverse like https://writing.exchange/about and https://www.bookwyrm.social/.

So, I suggest you should think about what makes your unique. Maybe creating a Lemmy community, as I can’t find one, to provide a new kind of user interface.

[Edit] BookWyrm is a “test instance”. hosting a public instance open to all should be a good contribution as well.

You said literature, not writers, so I included BookWyrm.

Maybe you can reach @matt@write.exchange to organize activities and interaction. Or maybe what you want works better on a different platform, like Lemmy.

Two cents to add. On “community”: It is interesting what @darius does with Friend Camp, creating more intimate community by allowing non-federated, local-only posting as well. Quoting: “I think local-only posting increases the vitality of community, increasing the volume of overall activity, and contributing more to the fediverse than a less vital instance would”. Here’s a good link mentioned in the toot: Run your own social - How to run a small social network site for your friends.

With Pleroma or Mastodon you can choose to run an instance just for yourself. I’ve seen several people do that, (and I did so myself to play around with Pleroma a few years ago) either self-hosted or rented (Like via : https://masto.host/). From your very own private instance you can start following others and interact.

That’s what I do. It’s a little harder to discover accounts to follow at first, but you can kinda fill out your timeline by following relays. Plus it’s nice to not have your federation choices be made by somebody else.

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
