Who are we? We're a group of people from all over NE IL/ SE WI who love to write. Our members come from all backgrounds, representing every stage of the writing process, from beginner to full-time writer. There are no limits on genre. Our members span the board, bringing in non-fiction, fiction, blogs, poems, essays, concept outlines, and so on. Meetings generally consist of members reading pieces they've written. They are then critiqued by the rest of the group. We strive to offer helpful tips for improving the author's work and skill as a writer. Sometimes we hold special events, including guest speakers and themed writing projects.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
