Come to a Buffalo Writers Meetup* to get constructive feedback on your work, discuss the writing life, trade literary tips, and enjoy great discussions. We offer weeknight Meetups for busy writers.

All writers are welcome! The format for the Meetups is simple: If there are new members, we do brief introductions all around the table. Then anyone who wishes to can read aloud from their work and solicit feedback. It's a relaxing, fun and supportive environment. We ask writers to read their work aloud; it's helpful if you bring enough copies of your piece to hand out at the Meetup. Just check the Calendar a few days before the Meetup to see how many writers have responded Yes, then bring a few less copies than that number.

We also encourage our members to use our discussion forums-- there are boards for general discussion, publishing talk, songwriting, and more; plus, boards dedicated to self-promotion among the membership. No one outside the group can read our boards or files. Discuss the writing life freely! We have found that being active within the group, whether you have anything to share yet or no, is a great way to jumpstart good writing habits and find inspiration to pursue your writing work. 

*A small yearly dues of $5 is charged for this Meetup; new members are encouraged to come to a meeting or two during a one month trial period, to see what we're about. Donations to support the cost of Meetup are also happily accepted by your organizers at any meeting or event, or through the site.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
