What we're about

This is for writers in the greater Oakland, MI area looking for an inclusive group of fellow writers.

Writing is a business, but it's also an art form, and this group is designed to focus on the art & artist. (I know that sounds lame, but at the same time, don't you like that I just called you an artist?)

This is a community of writers looking to support each other through critique, write-in sessions, and community. There'll be meetings in Troy and Rochester for teens and adults.

Introverts come together!

Oakland Writers Write-In - All ages welcome

Needs a location

This meeting was formerly the Troy Adult Writers Group and Brainstorming Session. That group had been meeting at the Troy Public Library for five years, and it was a good group.

But it needs to be something different. Now, we've come out of a pandemic and we're trying to redefine normal. Now, we need the community of other writers to help us find our words.

This bi-monthly meeting is now for coming together to support each other and make time for writing. We'll do a quick introduction and greetings, and then we'll get writing. Because we use Google Meetup, we get 1 hour together, so we'll make good use of that time.

15 minute sprints. 10 minute sprints. Maybe you're writing a poem. Maybe you're working out a scene that's stuck.

Whatever you're writing, let's make the words happen.

Together.
