  • Durham Writers Group

     This was my first time attending a writers group, and I felt so very comfortable! As a fragile newbie writer, I have not let anyone read my writing (not even my Mother!) but I feel comfortable sharing it with you and learning from your feedback. You'll see me on the docket in a few months!

  • Durham Writers Group

     Wonderful folks and well arranged event. Afterwards, the experience of a bunch of writers sending the message, "Good to see you," by pushing a single digital button on this website made me laugh. . . and then wonder if that is what it feels like to write to people using a Chinese typewriter.

  • Durham Writers Group

     An interesting and eclectic group of people I'm sure to learn from. This was my first meeting. I expect to become a regular.

  • Durham Writers Group

     Love to attend good writers groups like this one, whenever I'm in town. The Durham group is solid, with many dynamic readers, and the meetings are well-attended and quite informal. Writers get detailed comments, even with the large-group format.

     This writing group style is one that allows writers to get diverse perspectives from writers at different stages in their writing careers. I will continue to attend these meetings.

    Jon B. on Oct 27, 2011.

  • Durham Writers Group

     SF/F group is earnest and helpful, feedback is plentiful without being abrasive. Members are at many different levels of skill and career and have diverse tastes, so one person may like what another person says "cut", which means common feedback should be taken VERY seriously. Some superbly talented writers here, most of whom follow advice of award-winning writers and incorporate their methods here. 

    Jason R. P. on Jul 20, 2011.

  • Durham Writers Group

     I found the group to be serious about offering help to the stories that were read. The suggestions were pertinent and well thought out. We wondered only once into the Bog of never ending stench (you know, politics), otherwise we were focused on task. 

    F Hampton C. on Jun 8, 2011.

  • Durham Writers Group

     This is a great group where you can get and give honest, helpful feedback. It's also fairly eclectic, with folks working on everything from novels to screenplays. And whether you've got a few published titles under your belt or are still hammering out that first masterpiece, all are welcome! :) 

    Julie on Feb 14, 2011.

  • Durham Writers Group

     It's a group that genuinely seeks to be helpful to each writer. 

    Jim D. on Nov 11, 2010.
