We seem to have writers of all types in the group. Some, like myself, write because we like to and just share with our friends and families. Some write and get published. Some write novels, some write short stories and poems.
But I haven't seen anyone that does it all. I'll bet that there are some members in our group that could lead small 'How to' sessions that other members can participate in. Nothing formal, we don't need 100 page Powerpoint slide packs. Unless that's your thing, then bring it on.
But it would be nice to listen from someone who gets published often how to go about getting started. Or maybe what techniques you use to write a novel or documentary.
Maybe a meetup could be scheduled in your area and you can be the 'guest speaker' or just have a Q&A session where the topic would be 'Novel writing' and those with experience can be the panel.
Anyone interested in sharing?? A copy of this email is posted to the message board for everyone to respond to, or you can reply to this email and send me a note.
I'm open to any and all suggestions, don't be shy!!
The writing workshops and groups under my sponsorship are a group of community based writing organizations. Our purpose is to stimulate writing literacy, interest, and excellence through meetings, friendships, and peer critique.
- We serve open style critique groups as our mainstay, with the addition of tailored meetings for more involved or specific purposes.
- Our strength is among the community we derive from, and the empowerment of individuals to step up with our mutual support.
- Our secondary goals are to support community based efforts to provide opportunities and connections to help our individual members achieve personal and commercial success.
Documents and Resources - We have posted some resources you may want to check:
Respect does not come from being right. It comes from being wise. We’re not here to tell people the “right way” to do things. We’re here to guide people to the best ways to do things. Most of us are smart and knowledgeable. But our respect comes when we value the knowledge of others above our own.
