We are focused like a laser beam on writing short stories. And not just write them, but to publish a short story in a magazine or ezine.

We are looking to refine a method of writing short stories that can be taught to anyone. Each meeting we'll talk about what makes a short story a great story and then apply those lessons to our writing.

Membership in the group requires a concerted effort to publish your work. You'll be asked to select a magazine that you want to be published in. You'll be expected to subscribe to that magazine and read it as part of your goal to be published.

Along the way we'll be creating short stories to be published in our annual anthology.

We meet twice monthly (1st and 3rd Thursdays) at the Libbie Place Barnes & Noble.

So come join us for good times with good people and short stories.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
