Writers Chat

Note: We meet the first Saturday and second Sunday of every month. Space is limited at Panera, so please RSVP-- and update your RSVP as needed.


Stuck, struck dumb, or blocked? Inspired, on a roll or tearin' it up?

Is your latest accomplishment writing a single page, finishing the 265th revision of your book, or just making the commitment to writing?

Whatever your state of mind, this group is for you.

Whether you are passionate about inspirational work, how-to's or memoir; excited about graphic novels, YA or sci-fi; focused like a laser on literary fiction, poetry or mysteries-- we're here to talk about what's on your minds and to celebrate your steps.

Bring no pages-- just your desire to connect with and support other writers.

PS: We may email you for suggested topics before the meeting-- or post your suggested topics on the meetup page!

    Last time I had to bail because work popped up...and today I woke up w/a stomach virus. I hate having to miss again, but I doubt you guys would want me to share this bug w/you. I will make it to Writers Chat one day, if it's the last thing I do!

      I look forward to meeting you! My family name is Wrather. We go back to the Rather family at some point... apparently there was some disagreement about spelling!

    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that spots are still available for this workshop on Saturday in case you were interested. I will be attending :)

    Query Letter Workshop: Get Started. Get Noticed. Get Signed (with author C.J. Redwine)

    Join us to discover what your query letter must have to attract and hold the attention of the agent and publisher, as well as what your query letter must avoid if it wants to make it past the slush pile.
