This is a group for writers who are ready to share their work in an upbeat, supportive, communal environment. We have a website that will provide space for critique and continued conversation, but the group is there to let loose and socialise with some potentially like-minded expats and españoles. We spend enough of our time in dark spaces. This is meant to be a little ray of light. The hope is that community will foster work, and work will foster an even stronger community. We would like to look towards joint publication, short film projects, poetry collections, short fiction prizes, Skype-based union with groups in Chicago, NYC and LA... Any ideas? We have a great meeting space, The Toast Cafe, with sympathetic owners... And, we're just getting started, so this is a great moment for young writers to jump on board and help steer the ship.
