This is a group for anyone interested in learning about the different aspects and craft of writing fiction. Come and listen to (and take part in) presentations on: structuring scenes, developing memorable characters, showing and telling well, tension, editing, etc. I'd like to set up a writing group that's passionate about learning the craft of writing, a group where anyone passionate about a particular topic can run a presentation (or just come to listen, of course!). No one has to be an expert, we are all learners hoping to learn more by taking a topic and presenting it and/or by listening to other presentations.
