The every-other-month critique sessions are invaluable and have helped me understand better my own writing. The leadership is generous in its mission to serve the members offering great speakers and opportunities to have hands on experiences in editing and publishing. And I appreciate the regular contests where we get to know each other's work. Getting to know the other members has been wonderful because it has helped me learn about myself as a writer and about my work as well. ”

“ I didn't hear about the Main Line Writers Group until this summer. I thought I had missed the whole experience of self-publishing but last night, you out-did yourselves. With so much interest and sincerity from the newbies and original members, it is hard not to be caught up in so many interesting writing styles. Also, and most important, I've found out how much I didn't know; I'm learning so much and meeting so many great, creative people. "Write on"! ”

“ A well organized, well moderated, high end critique session with bright, smart and pleasant people of various age groups and backgrounds. Critiques were intelligent, specific, well rounded, constructive both pro and con, and interesting. It was obvious that all submitted pieces were closely read by those that critiqued them. ”

“ An excellent collection of people, all of whom are interested in the craft of writing. The location is nice, the food is good, and the beer selection is phenomenal (especially if you like hard-to-find imports). A little lean on the "socialization" side of things unless you show up early or hang out a bit after. Meet-ups run about 2 hours of "official" time, so plan on 7-9 if you're only looking for the writing stuff. ”
— William Y. on Jan 13, 2011.
