What we're about

ATTENTION: We are now virtual, on Zoom. So anyone from anywhere on the planet is free to come and join us to talk about their ongoing writing projects, fiction and non-fiction!

This is a group for people who care about ideas and about writing.

It's a weekly meeting, but don't feel that you have to come every week -- drop by when you feel like it.

I'm there every Sunday, however, to talk about writing and discuss goals and problems.

If you see nobody listed as attending don't worry -- there are usually at least a couple of people who come every week in addition to myself, and don't mark themselves as attending on MeetUp.

The meetings are at Dunkin Donuts in Belchertown. Please note that there are TWO Dunkins in town. We're at the one on Route 202, aka State St., next to the Checkers store. Google Maps will get you there.

We're also affiliated with the Strawdogs Writers Guild. Their website is here: http://www.strawdogwriters.org/

Tuesday Zoom and Write: NEW ZOOM LINK!

Email me: maria@korolov.com

Watch me write. While I watch you write. No voice, no sound, just video and text chat. We can check in and update each other on progress in an unobtrusive way while getting a bunch of focused writing done. NOTE: This is not the regular weekly writers group meeting -- that one is on Sunday afternoons. This is a "watch me write" session, where people have sound off, just video and chat, and work on their ongoing writing projects, and check in with each other in order to stay on track. ATTENTION: In order to avoid the waiting room, I've changed the Zoom meeting to allow people to join the meeting automatically, without sitting in the waiting room first. This means that people will be able to join in even if I'm away from the computer, or caught up in work, and don't notice that people are waiting to be signed in. As the weekday "zoom and write" becomes more popular, there are more people dropping in and out during the day to have some company while they work. (Well, virtual company, at least!) I will NOT be posting this link publicly. There are people out there who search the web for publicly posted Zoom links and join meetings naked. When I was first using Zoom, this past spring, someone like that actually joined! Fortunately, I disconnected the call before his camera panned down.... LOL To get the link, please email me at [masked]. Thanks!
