Columbia Writers is a close-knit group of dedicated writers and authors from all over Maryland. We take pride in each others' work and our shared goal is to encourage the work into its best possible version with the end goal of publication. All fiction genres are welcomed—we do not critique non-fiction or poetry.
- 1st and 3rd Weds meets (limit of 10 attendees): 2 writers submit up to 20 pages each. Prior attendance required before volunteering to submit.
- 2nd Weds/4th Thursday meets (limit of 5 attendees. If we have enough people signed up on the waitlist we will run a concurrent second group.): Every attendee submits up to 10 pages each.
- Novel in 6: Meets monthly for 6 months toward the goal of each member completing a novel. We work on pitches, first 5 pages, plot & character development, outlines, etc.
- We are currently working on our second group anthology, Trapped Tales (closed to submissions).
- Workshops and guest speakers on occasion. We welcome visitors from all areas of writing to share their expertise: blogging, self-publishing, traditional publishing, agents, competition judges, etc. Please contact Jen for more information.
- Awesome holiday parties and socials. Starving writers unite!
