Writers in all genres, styles, and formats thrive and flourish in a literary environment. The River City Writers Meetup has precipitated out of the cloud of knowable things for precisely that purpose.
While the actual craft of writerly composition is founded on the rock of solitude, companionship in the literary quest can make all the difference between dead stop and fuel-injected go. Sure, the dreaded peer-review may prove painful, but without it, how will we know if our writing speaks to others? We won't. Writing must be submitted to the shared reading experience if writers are to grow, progress, and contribute to the cultural environment.
River City Writers welcomes all persons of letters, writers of fiction and non-fiction alike. Poetry your thing? That's fine, too. Same for screenwriting, playwriting, blog hosting, book reviews, editorials, and whatever else requires the written word. Let's see what we can accomplish together as we discuss the writerly life, share publication information, and provide feedback on excerpts and short pieces.
