What we're about

Hello Writers,

Fiction Writers Workshop welcomes all levels of writers. Our Emphases are introverted-writer socialization and education for commercial fiction writers. With the shared goal of improving our craft, we meet, eat, critique, drink coffee by the gallon, study, and discuss process and marketing. We ask that all new members attend one of our Meet and Greet Write-Ins before attending our other meetups. Please come introduce yourself on the first Tuesday of the month. Fiction Writers Workshop currently offers three ongoing meetups. On the first Tuesday of the month we have our Meet and Greet Write-In. Bring you lap top and come write with other members and meet new members. On the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month we sponsor our Read & Critique, for a discussion on craft and a critique of larger works. On the third Tuesday, find Night Writers in Fallbrook, were we use writing prompts to spur our creativity. Please see the Home Page for more precise descriptions of our meetups (some have rules).

Night Writers

Needs a location

About Night Writers: NEW! Time permitting, those interested may read some of their work for feedback. You are welcome to bring extra print copies for a more comprehensive critique. Constructive feedback only. Now for the Old: Inspire your creativity at Night Writers! We write flash stories from prompts, experiment with writing games, discuss process or anything else of interest to us as writers. We pretty much do what we feel like. This meetup is a great way to meet other members. Just bring something to write with. Snacks are welcome, but optional. We usually meet for dinner at a Fallbrook restaurant before the meeting, the location of which I email to those who sign up for Night Writers. If you have any problems finding the house, call Richard:[masked]
