We all know that people who write books are half-crazy... Well, if it wasn't part of common knowledge, it is now.

So to keep us writers from falling off the edge into total insanity, we need pals, and good ones.

This is a group for people who are currently working on a book project. It can be any kind of book, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, self-help, history, politics, collection of essays. We get together once a month to read and critique each other's work, pick each other up when we're in doubt of ourselves, give honest feedback and wholehearted encouragement.

Because of the nature of the activities involved, we will break out into small groups (3-4 people) when necessary. The goal is to give every one sufficient opportunity to be heard and critiqued.

Welcome to the chaotic and beautiful lives of authors!
