Want to learn the craft -- and the business -- of professional writing? This is your group!
Want to sip tea and discuss 19th Century literature -- THIS IS NOT YOUR GROUP. Want to sit and review someone's writing for an hour, then review another person's writing and so on? THIS IS NOT YOUR GROUP.
We are all about getting YOU published, or continue being published. Period.
We work hard, laugh hard, and are hugely passionate about being published authors, screenwriters, poets, and playwrights. Please, join us if you want to learn the BUSINESS of getting and being published!
If you would like members of the group to read and comment on your writing -- you can certainly do that. We're glad to facilitate that. But our meeting time is primarily about learning things like:
• How much money will I really make as an author?
• What do editors look for?
• How do I write a good query letter?
• Do I need a platform?
• How can freelance people help me keep my book costs down?
