What we're about

ARE YOU A MEMBER OF A DOZEN GROUPS? Then you don't have time to write, this requires dedication.
We are meeting online through zoom and whatsapp
Email me if interested.

This is important and just to avoid confusion. This is a group of people who really want to be better writers. It is participative. If you're just joining for the sake of it, and don't participate, sorry I have to remove you. Meetup charges me for the number of members but I don't charge you.

Do you write, want to write or are just interested in writing? This group is for everyone regardless of age or experience. There is no genre or subject restrictions and the idea is just to create a group of friends who love the written word. I hope to gather together a mixture of talents and styles so we can all learn and grow with each other.
If you are interested or experienced in the world of writing, let's get together and see how much fun and learning we can have.
Don't be shy! This is not for experienced writers only. Don't be pretentious, this is not for amateurs only. This is for anyone who has the storytelling need or the poetic urge.

Hi
So what we do is this.
Meet on Zoom, details are on our meetup homepage. Each week to get and keep people writing, we have a challenge for a short story. This week [masked]) the subject is
The Explorers
Generally people will write[masked] words, there is no limit but longer than that is hard to fit them all in. Email them to me, I collate them and send them out Sunday night or early Monday for the Tuesday get together.
Then on Tuesday we have read everyone's stuff, we discuss, critique etc. No one is a jerk or mean, doesn't mean it will always be complimentary, but that is how we learn. Becoming better writers is the goal here.
Your story may be great, it may be terrible lol, but the important thing is to write, and keep writing. That is how we get better.
So leap in, get those creative juices flowing and participate.
Now the negative side.
A lot of people join but never do anything. After a month I remove them.
If you belong to like 30 different groups, you are probably not dedicated to any of them. Writing is hard, it takes a lot of time and it's pretty unlikely you are actually going to do it in between ballroom skydiving pottery time hehehe. If you want to write, write, but it takes dedication and determination. If it was easy, anyone could do it.
Any questions, just ask.

I was recently asked why attendance is so low. I explained that generally it is not, it is just that no one clicks the 'I am attending' button.
