“ Intelligent, fun, and provacative - one has an opportuntiy to learn and laugh. During the course of my first meeting I both learned and had an enjoyable time. Works presented are taken seriously on their own terms and comments are always constructive. Particapation keeps up one&#039;s level of motivation in a dynamic learning envirornment. No single person dominated the meeting, which was free of snobs and know-it alls. I plan to present next time and look forward to growing thereby as a writer. ”

“ It really helps your writing to sit and read it aloud to others, because you spot so many inconsistencies and errors, and things that need changing. Also, the reviews and feedback from the other members are a good mix of encouraging and critical. It's like having ten other pairs of eyes to help you spot things, and maybe comment on things you yourself never saw, or perhaps could not see. ”
