Been writing fiction of one sort or another for about 20 years and have the rejection letters to prove it. Now going around the flank of the publishing industry by e-pubbing on Smashwords and Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing services.
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.
