There are already plenty of writers' groups, but most of them are geared toward hobbyists rather than toward writers who think big (I know because I used to belong to three of them). If you're a self-published author having difficulty selling or promoting your work, or you're a writer who's frustrated by organizers who've told you what you are and aren't allowed to write, or you'd like to write and self-publish but are intimidated by the process, SPACE is for you. My name is Martin, and I've been there and done it!!! You do not need to be in the Mafia to self-publish!Self-publishing is not about selling books, it is about selling ENTERTAINMENT. If you have a good story to sell, but you can't get the attention of the major publishing houses (or maybe you've gotten a raw deal and you want to get out of a bad royalties contract), I will coach you in how to self-publish---and how to avoid the pitfalls I almost fell for when I began self-publishing in 2008. Or, maybe you just have a story which needs a little work... I can help you get your story into fighting trim, so that you can turn it into entertainment which will sell. Or, if music is your thing, if you've always wanted to write and publish songs or compose your own symphonies, Edward, our co-organizer, is here to help you with that. SPACE is an inclusive organization which welcomes fiction writers of all genres, nonfiction writers, music composers and songwriters, screenwriters, and aspiring writers, as well as web designers, illustrators, and people with management and public relations experience. Join SPACE and start getting the best returns for your creative talent!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
