My name is Jocelyn. I own and operate a horse ranch in Cedar Park. I have degrees in Journalism and Archeology, the later from UCLA. I have worked in publishing for many years in both staff and freelance capacities.
Austin Writers is a meant as a source of positive reinforcement and community for writers of all kinds in the Austin area. During a regular month, we have 2 meetups; one in South Austin & one in North Austin. (I am in the process of expanding that to 4 meetups a month.) These will be discussion based where people bring examples of their current writing for sharing (read silently) and to spark discussion.
The goal is simply to help foster a community of writers in Austin, and provide continuity to keep us writing as we go through daily life. It is not a heavy-duty workshop type thing. Absolutely all writing styles and approaches are welcomed; fiction, non-fiction, journaling, experimental.
Requested Donation to cover fees: $3 per Meetup. Thanks for helping us thrive!
Please Note! Austin Writers Meetup focuses on Austin and the central urban area. There is also a Round Rock Writers Group, run by different folks:
