What are you currently writing?

A novel set in Edwardian Scotland. There is a mystery wrapped up in the politics of the time, and the heroine is finding her way, politically, socially, and for the first time, independently.

What is your writing experience?

I've been a creative writer since high school, but always short stories and snippets of memoir. I wrote a novella in college and enjoyed some objective success in creative writing courses in college. But I have been stymied by perfectionism and have never even tried to get something --anything-- published, outside my own blog.

What would you like to get out of the group?

A community of supportive writers who will allow me to grow and learn from their techniques and voices, while helping me sharpen my own. Perhaps most importantly, I want a place where I can feel real. Where I can talk to writers about my writing and have someone understand. Where I can learn what I can improve and hear where I am touching others' hearts and minds. I need to be around other writers if I'm ever really to make it happen, and I really want to make it happen.


I'm a besotted wife, mom of 3 unruly lovelies and an ethics lawyer. I am finally astride my first serious attempt at a novel, at the mercy of characters who are increasingly frustrated with me. I am longing for a writers' community.

What Anne S. is saying about this Meetup Group

I really enjoy this writers' group so far. There is great diversity among the writers in style, interests and substance. Jessica does a very good job of organizing and steering the group, and the workshopping/critiquing has been very helpful so far. I am looking forward to reading more of what everyone has to offer.
