What we're about
A mastermind group for members of Guelph Write Now who are focused on writing as a career. You must be a member of the main group to join this group. And you must have a desire to publish, learn, and grow your readership.
The purpose of the group is to:
Provide accountability, help each other improve their productivity
Beta read for each other if needed (and if they have time)
Manuscript swaps (if they have time)
Marketing and publishing support
I would like to have monthly meetings so we can discuss challenges we're facing and the group can help brainstorm solutions.
I am also happy to share member releases that fit with what subscribers of my mailing list like.
If you're not quite ready to think about publishing and marketing please join the main group first at:
You can write. We're here to help.
Do you have voices inside your head that won't leave you alone until you get their story down on paper? Good news – you're a writer. Bad news – it's not as easy to get it down on paper as it sounds. Get together with other writers to discuss story structure, marketing your work, publishers, agents, brainstorming. We will even have the occasional critique. Novels, short stories, screenplays, poems – in all genres are welcome.
Discussion will be focused to the needs of writers aiming for publication. Any critiques will be aimed to help the writer improve their craft in order to get published. If you aren't willing to kill your darlings for the good of the piece this probably isn't the writing group for you.
Why you should join/benefits of joining:
