This group is open to anyone who shares an interest or enjoyment in writing. All are welcome, and it's important that this is always an inclusive group. Even if you've never written creatively before, you're more than welcome to come along.
This is a relaxed forum to discuss writing styles, share advice, ideas, and if you so wish, to give readings of something you're working on. Critique is welcome, but always constructively, and with the aim of helping fellow writers. We're all part of the same team.
I have very recently taken over the group, as the founder currently has a lot on her plate and as such I'm still forming a vision of what this group could be. Please feel free to share with me directly, your own thoughts on what you would like from this group and together we can build something fun, inclusive, creative and sustainable.
I'd like to share a quote I recently found by an American Journalist, Soledad O'Brien:
"I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that?"
I'm on a journey with my own writing, as perhaps are you, so let's share the journey together, face our own fears and see where the light takes us.
In the coming months and with your involvement we can shape this group into a toolbox for aspiring writers. I have lots of ideas that I'd like to incorporate and I'd really like to hear yours, so please come along and join in.
