First and foremost:
We are not a critique group.
We are not a workshop group.
We are not a teaching institution.
We are a group of writers who get together to...just write.
This is a group that meets to WRITE, to socialize, and to offer encouragement and inspiration to others as we practice our craft. We're focused on the process, not the product. Writing can be a solitary activity...but it doesn't have to be.
This is a group where the focus is actually on DOING the work as opposed to critiquing already finished works. I found so many groups on meetup focused on the critique, but none focused on motivating each other to get the writing done. So if you need motivation to get started, set a writing schedule, keep at it, or finish that novel, this group is for you.
We meet on Tuesday evenings, alternating Thursday and Friday evenings, and Sunday afternoons on the north side of Chicago; Friday afternoons on the northwest side of Chicago; and Wednesday evenings on the south side of Chicago. Our locations are kept private for the safety and comfort of our members, so they may feel unencumbered while they write.
For more information on Just Write Chicago, please refer to our new Policy & Procedures manual which can be found under More -> Files.
New members must be approved by the Organizer
