We are passionate writers looking to meet other passionate writers. Our group loves to have fun and our atmosphere is warm, welcoming, playful - at times even silly. At the same time, when we get down to it, we offer sincere feedback, trying to improve each other's work. We believe that to give good feedback we have to tell the writer what worked well first, what moved us, what inspired us, what made us want to punch something or someone. Then, we talk about what can be improved. The environment is truthful, but safe.

Our hope is to create a nurturing community of writers who believe that writing is perhaps the most important thing in the world and who inspire one another to publish and to grow in their craft.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
