I am looking forward to getting to know others who enjoy writing. I am starting a website to showcase fiction and Memoir and hope the group will be willing to critique some of the pieces I share. It's been a while and I look forward to being involved with a writing group!
I enjoy fiction but my self-confidence is a little low in this area. I am also doing Memoir 'vignettes' for my website and would love to one day publish them, either online or print. Time and responses will tell. Look forward to meeting you all! (Picture is of me and my daughter a few years ago.)
Grew up on LI and raised my daughter here. Lived in NYC from 1991-2011. Now wheelchair bound due to MS and a serious spine condition, I'm a disability advocate and avid writer. Came back to LI in 2011 to be near family.
I am pleased that I found and joined this group so soon after moving back to Long Island from Manhattan. I found the participants to be serious about their writing and interested in what others had to say about what they wrote, as well as commenting on what others wrote. Their was a great give and take that I look forward to participating in with my own manuscripts. I am sure I will learn a lot. Thank you all for welcoming me into your Meetup Group!
