Do you want to write "me too" fiction or do you think you can do better? Do you want to be one of the ten percent that succeed? Would a group that provides external expectation help you motivate? This is intended to be a focused group of science fiction and fantasy writers who want to help each other with ongoing projects. We usually hold bi-weekly meetings on weekends or weeknights depending on what members want. This would be a creative group that helps you flex your writing muscles, by using collaboration, creative prompts, a forum to get feedback on anything you are currently working on, and a way to bring together writers of a common genre for support and ultimately getting published. I plan on choosing venues to meet that are conducive to creativity, anywhere from cozy independent coffee shops, or free public libraries in the area. Do you feel you have something awesome to add to the group? Then please do join our movement..

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
