We all tend to get swamped with everyday responsibilities, stress, and work. As critical as the two out of three of them are we also need time for ourselves. Time to nurture our love of writing and to connect with other writers who are equally committed to their art.
We meet weekly, read and critique each other's work. The discussions are focused on the writing and improving it so it is ready for publication. In the group, we have a good mix of published, soon-to-be published and new writers working together. We stick to a consistent schedule so every writers has the opportunity to share and have feedback. We do have social time after the meetings if you need a more in-depth critique or want to expand on the conversation about your writing.
