We are a diverse group of aspiring writers working together to better our craft. We split our time between hosting a writing workshop and sharing tools of the trade with each other. No matter what your interest--short stories, poetry, novels, sci-fi/fantasy, horror, romance, steampunk, screenwriting, playwriting, historical fiction, memoir, travel writing, journalism--you are welcome here. We create a safe space for a diverse group of new and veteran writers to grow through encouragement and constructive criticism.  Check us out on Facebook Shades of Ink Writing Collective.
