Once a month we gather for a low-pressure chance to socialize with other folks interested in writing science fiction, fantasy or horror. Topics tend to range from "why I'm here at this group and what I like to write" through specific questions about writing process and problems to discussions of sf/f/h works and debates on ideas of general interest relative to writing sf/f/h. We post an optional writing exercise, and if there are takers, we read and comment on their work.

Occasionally we hold hands-on intensive workshops on specific writing topics. These usually last longer and are often on a weekend.  Previous topics have included Character Development and Worldbuilding.

More frequently, we hold "Write-Ins" for our members to get together in a quiet venue with their preferred writing tools and work. These provide motivation and accountability, as well as impromptu challenges and  brainstorming.

Some of our members are seeking critique circle opportunities. While this group does not currently function as a critique circle, it is an opportunity to meet others who might be so inclined, or who may be interested in one-to-one critique exchanges. We currently have two active critique circles as satellites of the Meetup. Interested writers can inquire about openings with the member facilitators of each group. Just ask at a meeting.
