Brooklyn Writers Guild is designed with the aim to encourage writers at all levels, writing in all media and formats, to write.
We come together on a fortnightly basis to offer in-depth, constructive critique of a written excerpt submitted by an author. During these sessions, we may also discuss topics of particular interest, such as how to overcome writer's block, or whether--and how--to publish.
We are a thoughtful, lively group, made up of all kinds of writers: from published, accomplished poets, novelists and scriptwriters, to novice writers just starting out.
The Guild is also open to non-fiction submissions, whether these are research-based, creative non-fiction pieces, or technical submissions. As a general rule of thumb, non-fiction pieces which work best are those which have a wide appeal, or some means by which a non-specialist can engage with the work.
At the end of each quarter, an open mic session is generally offered, for authors to read their work aloud to a supportive audience.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
