Howdy, and welcome to Weird Austin Writers.  If you’re a writer but your goal is to be an author...this is your place. Whatever a writer writes is art from the mind.  We're a talented group who like getting and giving feedback for manuscripts.

This group is all about helping writers write better and get published.

This Group will be doing:

  • 2 Read, Workshop, and Chat meetups per month
  • 1 Brainstorming session to get feedback on pre-manuscript ideas
  • 1 Book Review session, where you talk about books you've enjoyed or learned new writing techniques

Our semi-permanent meeting space is Monkey Nest Coffee on Burnet Rd.

Now, our "Charter"

  • We welcome newcomers. If you RSVP Yes to a meetup, come.
  • If you RSVP Yes and No-Show 3 times, we will boot you from the group. If you're a first-timer, your first no-show gets you booted from the group. We're more understanding of those who come frequently and are active contributors.
  • Things happen, we know. If you RSVP Yes and find out you can't make it, change your reply at least 2 hours before the meetup, If you don't, it'll count as a no-show.
  • We want honest feedback, but we don't want jerks. If you're a jerk when critiquing another writer, we'll politely ask you to never return.
  • We believe growth comes from reciprocal critique. If you expect everyone to read and gush over you without contributing and providing feedback to others, this isn't your scene.

 

So once again, Welcome to Weird Austin Writers.

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.
