Why hello! We're a group of writers of varying skill levels - published or not - and we meet to workshop up to two to three pieces one Sunday once a month. We welcome novels, non-fiction books, short stories: just about anything you're willing to write and need another pair of eyes for. All we ask is that you take writing semi-seriously to seriously, that you're open to differing viewpoints and criticism, and that you give some in return. If you want to be a better writer, that's what we're here for.

Make sure you submit a 3-page-ish writing sample to get approved. Don't be shy! Workshops are all about sharing your writing!
