This is an interactive writing group designed to provide a source of information, motivation, and opportunity for writers to sharpen their writing skills. Member-driven meetings are designed to give you that edge and motivate you to meet schedules, share writing problems, find solutions, and get encouragement and support from like-minded individuals.

Here you can sign up to be a host or speaker for workshops, arrange a mini-event, read some pages of your work, and network with writers in a wide range of interest, ages, and experience. Those of our group who have published will be invited to share what they have learned with us.

Our group is just writers meeting writers to offer support and encouragement. A short presentation will start some meetings, followed by announcements and introductions or readings and critique sessions of members original work. We welcome all genres; poetry or prose, fiction or non-fiction.  Make time for your dreams. Step up and join us.
