The purpose of the Cincinnati Fiction Writers group is to bring together individuals who want to strengthen their writing with the goal of becoming published authors. If this is you and you are currently working on a novel or short story, you are welcome to join us in this journey.

We meet on the first and third Mondays of each month. Attendance is fluid; come when you can.

 There are no fees, but we meet at a coffee shop which requests that we please buy stuff from them (coffee, other drinks, snacks, ice cream available) since they give us the room free.

Each meeting we look at up to 3 writers' work.  We'll read 10 pages double spaced aloud, then discuss.  You don't need to do anything to prepare, but most of the writers do post their stuff ahead of time (under "more," then "files' on our meetup site) so if you'd like to print out the submissions and make suggestions, you're welcome to do that.  No one is required to present or to participate in discussion;  it's OK to just come and listen.
