What we're about
We are a writers' group that meets regularly in Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Harrisburg, and Dillsburg. We're dedicated to helping our colleagues polish and publish. Please join us if writing is your passion, your thing, or your raison de vivre. We are egalitarian. As writers, we are in varied stages of development, but we remember the beginner's experience.
All that we expect of you as a member is a sincere effort to grow as a writer, and to do your best to provide honest, yet kind, reviews. At our meetups we'll do in-depth critiquing, and discuss topics related to our craft. If you've never critiqued or been critiqued, we will guide you. Our group will review any sort of work, fiction, or non-fiction.
In the case of submissions that are overtly political, religious, or otherwise controversial, we will attempt to give unbiased feedback on the quality of writing, and how well the work achieves its intended purpose or effect. However, if a submission is so disturbing to a member that it impairs the ability to offer a balanced review, that person may recuse her/himself. Blatant hate speech is not permitted; it will create a climate anathema to the congenial interaction of our writers. Our meetups are intended to provide a positive experience and to nurture our writing talents
Please review your work for grammar and spelling accuracy before submission. If you submit work it WILL be critiqued, so there is an expectation of quid pro quo, even if you do not physically attend the meetup.
Note: Some work submitted may be intended for mature readers, so if you are under 18 years of age, we request that you obtain permission from a parent/guardian before you participate. See you at our next workshop!
