If you have just installed Mastodon and don't know where to start to find people to follow a good idea is to try and check other users follows and one by one try to see if you find someone to follow.
Alternatively you can go to https://communitywiki.org/trunk and do the same on the categories that interest you.
If you are lazy and don't want to look up one by one, I created a little script to generate a csv from Trunk categories: https://hugo.gameiro.pt/trunk-to-csv/ that you can then import in Mastodon.
@hugo looks like a pretty nice tool, thanks. :)
#literature and #poetry are missing imho ;-)
