Why do you want to join the group? Please tell us something about yourself

I think it's important for a writer to associate with other writers. There's always something you can learn about the craft of writing, new markets available, and good agents. I like to share and accept advice from other writers.

What writing experience have you had? (New writers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!)

I've had experience as a technical writer but now I'm concentrating on fiction and poetry.

Are you currently working on any projects?

My current project is a novel with a setting in a coal mining town in West Virginia. I'm also working on a one-act play.

Do you have skills that you would be willing to share with the group?

I have a 10 minute presentation on the craft of writing fiction.


I think it's important to practice the craft of writing every day to try to improve your skills. You don't have to write a story; there are plenty of writing exercises that you can do just for practice.
