Come meet other local writers and let creativity bloom! Looking to make this group writer friendly, helpful and encouraging to new and experienced writers. Critique for growth will be encouraged- but it should be appropriate and given in a helpful manner!

The Durham Writer's Group is the second largest writer’s group in the RTP area. We are a group of writers focused primarily on improving our writing and polishing our work for publication.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
