We are an eclectic groups of writers who are serious about perfecting our craft. We meet once a week to read aloud and seriously critique original works of fiction, narrative non-fiction, poetry, memoirs, sci fi, fantasy and basically everything in between. Members should be familiar with the fundamentals of storytelling: the inciting incident, first and second plot points, etc.

If you're looking for a group that meets to only offer support and undeserved kudos for your work, we are NOT the group for you. If you're looking to publish in an academic journal, we won't be a good fit for you.

BUT...  if you are looking to becoming a better writer and are aiming to be competitive in the traditional publishing market, welcome aboard! We look forward to meeting you.

We're 35 Writers
