What we're about

We welcome active writers of book-length and short fiction who are dedicated to growing as writers in a non-threatening yet challenging environment. We gather twice a month to share successes and rejections, critique one another's work, and celebrate the joys of writing.

The group leader, Trina Allen, is a longtime writer and the former fiction editor of Pig and a Poke online literary magazine. She develops educational tests by day to support her writing habit. Her work can be found at http://www.trinaallen.com/.

This in-person group critiques all genres of fiction. The group is not an open-mic format - critiques are prepared before the meetings. Pieces up to 10 pages are submitted via Dropbox at least one week prior to meeting. Please be able to commit to attending each meeting, critiquing the three pieces ahead of the meeting, and submitting regularly.

Please send Trina a message to add you to our shared Dropbox folder once you have RSVPed to a critique session.
