Don't know where to start? Need more information on plot, characterization, editing, book proposal, query letter, etc.? Finished your book and want to know the next steps? Want feedback on your writing? We're here to help!
This new version of the group started on October 29, 2015. The first part of each meeting is dedicated to sharing information on writing and publishing. The second half is for critiques. The critiques are based on a form which Susan Graham developed while replying to queries as a literary agent. They are available to group members by downloading them from the Files section. Personal attacks will not be tolerated! The offending person will be asked to leave.
This group was originally started by Joe (jrendace), who decided to discontinue leading the group in October 2015. He carried this group over from New York, where he ran a writing group that included novels, short stories, and screenplays. We won't be including screenplays, but we will be including more information, question and answer, and a specific critique form to fill out, and will include nonfiction. The group name has been changed to reflect this, from Alpharetta Novel and Short Story Writing Group to Alpharetta Writing Group.
