“ Christina has so much insight into the craft. 1000 words is not enough to do her justice. If you're writing now, considering writing, or have a vague idea you think might just work as a peice of literary art, whether it's poetry, a short story, or a novel, this group is well organized, focused, and Christina is honed in on helping you complete your story. To do this group justice, all I can say is come out and see for yourself. ”

We are behind you all the way. ”

— Rick S. on Jul 17, 2012.
“ I really like this group. Though I have been attending it for a short time, I have learned so much. Being in a room of such great and wonderful creativity is uplifting. Having a forum where we are given the opportunity to share our works in a ways that we can be true to ourselves is refreshing. I have sensed an underlying sensitivity among the members to be honest and, most importantly, encouraging with their critiques. This adds a level of safety to being in this group. This group really inspires (at least it does me) to pursue writing. The information concerning writing that is shared by Christina and Gil is invaluable; especially for novices like me. I look forward to growing and learning more. ”
— Marcia E. on Jul 10, 2012.
“ I look forward to coming here every other Monday to spend time with such creative, lively folks. Most of us seem to have made promises to ourselves to actually finish and publish something before very long. Several in the group have already accomplished that. Christina guides us along that path. Y'all come! ”
— David M. on Jun 5, 2012.
“ The meetings that I've been to have offered up lots of great perspectives on where to take a story, how to improve on the plot and characters, and even details for improving aspects of a story such as scene and dialogue.
