Writers and readers of any genre, but fantasy and science fiction in particular, getting together on a weekly(or bi-weekly) basis to discuss their projects. Let's get together and offer encouragement and advice over coffee or cocktails. Whether you need a sounding board for you ideas, or just someone to motivate you to keep writing, this is the group for you. And if you don't write, but would love to be an alpha reader and someone to bounce ideas off, you are welcome too. All are welcome, but meetings will be confined to the South Arlington area. I am open to any suggestions for meet up places.
