This is a friendly informal group in northwest Las Vegas for people who are interested in writing, from those just thinking about it to those who have been published. The group is facilitated by Glory Wade and Kerry Ganza. And it's free! (Donations to pay for its presence on Meetup are welcome if anyone is so inclined.)

We meet from 5:30pm to 7:30pm the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Aliante Library. We do writing/educational exercises and critiques the first Tuesday; just critiques the third Tuesday. Occasionally, we have guest speakers.

Exercises include grammar, use of the five senses, re-wording of cliches, etc. Members who want their stories critiqued read at the meetings and bring hard copies (ideally) for their peers to edit. The copies are returned to the author after the attendees give their feedback.

If you are considering writing, have written but are not published, or have been published, please join us. We don't bite!!

Come share, learn and help others who love the written word.
