The Writer Zen Garden began in 2008 with the dream of supporting writers and other creative people as they developed their artistic ideas and dreams. Why does the world need another writing group? Many groups exist where writers can have their work critiqued, but there are fewer places for people to go to receive guidance in a supportive environment where the emphasis is, as author Julia Cameron puts it, “getting on the page.” What started as a forum and a blog has evolved into a solid, tight-knit community of like-minded individuals who meet online to talk about writing, the creative process, photography, gardening, and a host of other interests. We have a small but growing online forum and membership is free. Our members come from all over the world and from all walks of life. The focus is on “doing” and not just “talking about it.”
I've been part of Meetups since 2009 and love the community's focus on "getting out there and doing it." I've met some of my best friends through Meetup and am excited to join the ranks and found my own group to share my love of writing.
For me, it's all about the yarn - spinning a yarn, knitting with yarn, sharing stories and good times over a cup of coffee with dark chocolate. I am a bestselling author under the name A. Catherine Noon and love to connect with other writers.
I had a great time this evening! The prompts were inspiring and I had a lot of fun ideas to play with. Thank you!
