A writing group is a bit like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Its quality very much depends on how well it's taken care of. A good writing group gives inspiration, motivation, community, perspective, and of course, constructive criticism. Unfortunately, groups often get bogged down in squabbles and ennui. Bananafish is a series of writing groups around the idea that it's worth a few bucks ($50 per month in this case) to hire a writer/teacher to handle the logistics, moderate the meetings, and keep everything on an even keel. It's my job to stimulate inspired discussion and tease out helpful feedback while making sure that all voices are heard and no one gets beaten up. This group meets on alternate Monday evenings for two hours twice a month. In the spirit of healthy cross-pollination, all genres are welcome. You don't have to be a published writer to join, but this group isn't for absolute beginners. At the moment, new members are welcome. If you're interested, request to join our group and sit in on a meeting.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
