What we're about

Welcome Writers!

Our purpose is to meet monthly to share writing & publishing knowledge, to improve our writing, for encouragement to pursue our dreams despite life's stumbling blocks.

When writers get together, there's an exciting energy in the air, and I love that. I love talking our special language - the creative process, the joys, the frustrations of a blank page, how to regain that enthusiasm after a crushing rejection. However, most organizations are either an hour east of us or an hour west, and I don't always make the meetings.

So I've formed one in the local area. I've met several wonderful people who are writing, some with the same passion I possess, others who are writing in their spare time. And that's okay. I'd like our organization to include writers from all walks of life, all genres, all ages and professions. I hope published authors will join as well as writers working toward that goal. I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way, and I'll ask other writers to share their knowledge as well.
