This is a group for writers of all genres in Jefferson City, MO! We will encourage each other, provide critiques, celebrate our successes and learn from each other. Whether you are going down the self-publishing path or the traditional, whether you write science fiction or literary work, you are welcome here!!! Do you write short stories and have considered writing a longer work? Come meet with us!! Do you have a book you've been working on for years, but just can't seem to finish? Come meet with us!! Being around other writers is so essential when it comes to the motivation and knowledge needed to publish! We will focus on novels, however the occasional shorter work is welcome, too! The only restriction: Please no sexually explicit or vulgar work in critiques.
