This group will be a writer's support group. We will meet to discuss our works in progress, provide feedback, and learn more about the craft. The idea here is for all of us to be familiar with other’s works so that when we meet up we can offer insightful comments, support, feedback, and motivation. We will also give suggestions on query letters, the synopsis, etc. We will discuss agents, query letters, synopses, the first five pages, the first sentence of a novel, beginnings, middles, and endings. I hope that everyone will bring queries, synopses, excerpts, etc. to discuss. I also want us to talk about:

  • Queries that worked (and those that didn’t!)
  • How you got your agent
  • Independent publishing
  • Frustrations you face on your publishing journey (traditional or independent)
  • How are you building your platform?
  • Book Marketing
  • Short story publishing successes
  • Blogging
  • Any helpful articles Upcoming conferences/writers’ workshops that you know of
  • Any other issues pertinent to aspiring writers.

I hope that this group can serve to motivate writers to finish projects, write the project they are most afraid to write, and to face their publishing fears (whatever those may be).
