Agony Aunts

Have a problem (with writing)? Something technical? How to get started, writer's block, POV confusion, are commas purely decorative? Tell the group and we'll discuss it.


(Note for newcomers: We actually meet in the Atrium, next door, but access is through the coffee shop. If the coffee shop is closed then there is a security guard at the Atrium's Blanshard St entrance who will usually let you in.)

    Awesome! Very interesting hearing from other writers about their writing woes. My first Agony Aunts and I have been challenged to create something readable for the Meet and Greet next week! Just what I need.

    Thanks, Peter, for facilitating another great session. I admire both the courage of those willing to share the challenges they're wrestling with, and the generosity group members with a wealth of positive and helpful comments. It's great to have a safe place to tackle the tough work of writing, and among people who understand.

    I hope this is the kind of group where people share there writing, and critique.

      Yup. The third Monday of each month is set aside for critiquing (usually in a subgroup). Plus we have occasional Show n Tell sessions.

    I'll be taking a 3 wk hiatus from the group starting the 30th. Other priorities require my attention but never fear, I will return :D
