Novel and Short-Story fiction group for more experienced writers interested in traditional publishing rather than indie or self-publishing. You need not be published, but please, no beginners. Although we do hope to learn from one another, this group is not meant as a class. All genres of fiction are welcome (no hard-core pornography or overtly religious or political writing, please). We can be many things for one another: we can form critique groups, support teams, go on "field trips" such as to readings, book signing, conventions, university-sponsored literary events; we can network, or we can just get together once weekly or monthly to talk shop over coffee or wine. Those interested in the traditional path are faced with unique challenges, and we all benefit through relationships with other writers.
