Columbia Writers is a close-knit group of dedicated writers and authors from all over the Balto-DC metro area. 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.
- 20/20 Critique Group (10 attendees): 2 writers submit up to 20 pages each. Prior attendance required before volunteering to submit.
- Small Group Critique (5 attendees): Every attendee submits up to 10 pages.
- CORE Small Group Critique (8 attendees): Every attendee submits up to 10 pages. For members who've attended 25+ CW meets.
- 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.
- As a group, we have published two anthologies currently available on Amazon, Bistro Bites andTrapped Tales.
- Workshops and guest speakers. 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.
