What we're about

Quad Cities Writers Meet Up is a group dedicated to supporting and encouraging writers (18+) of all levels, experiences, and genres in pursuing their dreams of publication. For beginning writers we offer feedback and methods in helping to make sure that your first steps into writing are positive ones, while for the more experienced writers we offer substantive critiques to help sharpen your work on its way to submission for publication. Our hope is to create a nurturing community of writers who believe that writing is perhaps the most important thing in the world, and who inspire one another to publish and to grow in their craft.

We will be starting each 20 minute writing sprint on the half hour, starting at 10:30. We'll be there until 1:30 PM. If you can't make it for the whole session, come for one or two sprints.

July 1st QC Writers Meet-Up "Breaking into Three"

Davenport Public Library - Eastern Avenue Branch

Our next meeting will take place on Monday, July 1st. Our meeting time is 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. We are continuing our series of meetings based on the book "Save The Cat! Writes a Novel By Jessica Brody. In this meeting, we will go over Breaking into Act III, pages 65-70. I also ask that if you have a copy of the book, you look over and answer the questions on page 78-79. If you do not have have a copy of Save The Cat! Writes a Novel, you will still be able to follow along with the group, but I highly encourage you to attain one at some point as you will find it to be a valuable resource. Time allowing​ we may also do some critique. If you have something you wish to share with the group, please let me know so I can make sure we get you on the agenda.
