    It was great being part of community of writers after trying to forge ahead so long on my own - folks seemed enthusiastic, committed, brought work that encompassed a variety of genres; I also received great feedback on the first pages of my novella, and hoped my own feedback was helpful.

    Hi, I'm new. I'm not really "writing" much yet - just have some ideas and such. Am I allowed to join in to listen or do I actually have to contribute a piece at the first meeting?

      Hi - I'll jump in with zero authority apart from past experience. Basically - yes, feel free to come even if you really feel that you have nothing to share, or would prefer to get a feel for the group first. Having said that, the emphasis is on writing and sharing work, so if you don't plan on ever sharing maybe this won't fit so well - generally people find sharing work helpful and sometimes inspiring. Don't worry that only perfect finished work is presented - people show work at all stages of development. From very rough and ready scene ideas, to novel excerpts and polished articles, it all makes a very interesting mix.

      Thanks I will definitely be sharing once I get to the next meeting. I do have writing but like it to be heard/read in some context. Thanks!

    Hi, I would like to bring to everyone's attention to Nicole Chardenet's book launch for Sumer Lovin', a highly humourous novel about love and adventure in Toronto. The book launch is at 6:30 PM at Ben McNally Books, 366 Bay Street, Toronto on February 13, 2013. Doors open at 6 pm. Everyone is welcome. It's free and wine and cheese will be served. I will represent Deux Voiliers Publishing, Nicole's publisher, and will be happy to answer questions about our micropress. Oh yes, here is the link to the book http://www.amazon.ca/Sumer-Lovin-Nicole-Chardenet/dp/0988104849/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359686420&sr=8-1
