This is a group for writers of any type to come together for support and a host of other writing oriented activities. Most events will be critiques of each others works. Other events my include going open mics, visiting other writers groups (i.e. Illinois State Poetry Society, Poets and Patrons) or making  the trek to the Printers Row event in Chicago. All suggestions are welcome. This will be a safe place to share your work as we will be supportive and encouraging of each other. There are groups out there that are pretty hard on some of their members. While honesty is necessary, being brutal isn't. This is where this group makes a concerted effort to be honest, but, caring, offering intelligent rather than emotional critiques.

All are welcome here, whether one is penning their life story to pass along to their grandchildren, creative flash fiction, speculative fiction or a sci-fi/fantasy, let's get together to do this thing and have fun doing it.

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.
