“ Mr. Warren floats a boat that can help steer any writer in the write direction. Hope he soon invites the topic of "pitching", and -that lady in the smooze pink lipstick to talk about being at the point to have to turn down some freelance work... ”

“ The Las Vegas Writer's Group is terrific but I'm not so sure about meetup. I submitted the RSVP, paid the entrance fee and attended, but I'm not listed here. I received a notice I hadn't attended in six months but haven't missed a meeting since I started in October, 2014. ”
— Gary W. O. on Feb 19, 2015.
“ I enjoyed meeting people who are interested in sharing their experiences with me and with each other and the world. The talent of writing is primarily enhanced by hard work and heartbreak, as well as a lesson in self criticism. I have a feeling that this group has experienced plenty of the latter. I am learning that if you do not take a risk, you will never find out. ”
— Norma Jean P. on Sep 19, 2014.

“ Loved the Three Angels routine! Apologies to John and others for our table's overly-creative story of vampires and stake wielders! We were trying for conflict, wacky humor, and a surprise ending! Buffet was great too! I have to be cautious, and I didn't have any trouble finding things to eat. And thank you, thank you, for coffee! There are some who enjoy it even late in the day. ”

“ I like the group. The speakers give me information that is helpful to my writing. The hand-outs are a big plus. The meetings are started and finished on time. There are no pauses to distract from the flow. The book/writer question game with prizes is fun. The meetings are a great way to meet people. The affordable five dollar charge makes the idea of week night socializing afterwards over food/and or drinks more attractive. ”

— Steve F. on Dec 6, 2010.

“ Writing is lonely and isolating and it helps a great deal to be around other writers. You can automatically feel supported, encouraged, plus directly learning stuff from other writers. AND we have speakers and topics. Plus drinks, laughs and the unmet friend. Also, if you are in danger of writing with confidence and approaching completion of your manuscript, you can join a critique group to then get bogged down, become riddled with conflicting opinions, due to the blonde-leading-the-bland nature of them, and add years to your completion date, if that is what you want. And I appreciate this feedback loop opportunity. My ongoing thanks to Richard, Vic, Lindsay, Cheryl, our speakers, our greeters, and everyone else who volunteer their time to make it all happen; they are doing a very good job. ”
— John H. on May 17, 2013.
“ You should only join if you want to meet people serious about becoming writers. ”
