“ very thoughtful. terrific analysis. good diversity. In essence the dreaded community psyche is in the room. It's the long lost relative who some days we pray stays lost and on other days won't admit is a relative. It's the lumbering hulk democracy tasks with holding irreconcilable differences between its ears and can act very odd. Really dinner with the unruly scalawag? It is heartening that perfect strangers can get together and have a productive exchange all the while knowing our mutual relative could show up any time. ”
— Kevin C. on Nov 13, 2011.

“ Nice people, fun atmosphere. However, underneath the superficial glossy paint, I would recommend this group for those who have nothing more than high school or college classroom writing experience and want to learn the nuances of the writing world from the ground up. Advanced or intermediate writers may not get the same fulfilling experience. If you have a large piece of work that is complete, I would recommend other groups suited for this. DWM tends to work better for those who have small, completed pieces such as short stories or similar works that are combined into anthologies. ”
