Many of us love to write, but we have no time.  We'll write while on vacation or when the kids move out or when we have free time, but sometime is not a day of the week, so it never gets done.  Then there are times when we are all ready to write and we don't know where to start.  Those amazing ideas in our head seem to lose translation when put to paper or worse yet, the idea factory in our head is generating no products.

That's where this group comes in by providing a safe place to share your work with others.  Each member of our group generally shares an original piece each week.  This keeps us productive and allows us to experiment.  During the meetings each member reads her piece and is gently critiqued, more on the content of the piece and not on grammar and other mechanics of writing.

I am an budding writer.  I started out as an engineer and am now a health data scientist, but writing has always been my passion.  Right now I work part time and have two freelance gigs to write web content.  I have been with the group since January 2013 and my writing has improved enormously in this period.  I don't think I'd have made more progress than if I had  consulted dozens of writing books or seminars.  Plus unlike books or seminars (which are useful tools), our group only cost $1.00 per week!

I hope you come try out our group.  I am most interested in getting your feedback.  We want to get better and better in facilitating good writers!
