What we're about
SF Writers Group Therapy is for you if you're looking for a support group to talk about your writing struggles and share advice. It doesn't matter what kind of writer you are. Fiction, non-fiction, blogging, screenplay, everyone is welcome.
If you're interested in sharing your own struggles and self-discoveries around writing, this is the place for you. Would you like to become the best writer you can be? This is your group. Just bring your full, vulnerable self and the rest will happen naturally.

About the Meetup Facilitator
My name is Derek Ralston and I’m a productive writer. It wasn’t always this way. I blogged sporadically. I wrote books when I felt like it. Writing was this special endeavor that I had to be motivated to do. I found out the hard way that motivation is a fickle thing. By this time, I had stopped writing altogether.
Years later, I discovered simple strategies to get myself writing again. And I built a consistent writing habit.
I’ve made it my goal to help writers get unblocked and show up consistently so they can share their writing with the world.
