What we're about

This group is for writers and aspiring writers who want help setting and reaching their writing goals. We welcome all kinds of writers, including people creating books, short stories, blogs, articles, poetry, journals, and business writing.

We have a monthly goal-setting Meetup that includes a group discussion/coaching session about people's projects and how to overcome any individual blocks or obstacles and an education section with subjects about writing, editing, and publishing. We also meet weekly for a 60-minute write-in, and we have the occasional writing workshop.

This is a very supportive group. Many members go on to create offline friendships and support each other in their careers. We hope you'll join us!

The Writing Accountability Group is led by Erin Servais, a book editor, author coach, and founder of Dot and Dash, LLC, an author-services company (www.dotanddashllc.com). You can reach her at Erin@dotanddashllc.com.

March Writing Accountability Meetup

Online event

We have a very exciting meeting this month. Three published authors will join us to answer all of your questions about the publishing process. Be prepared to ask them about the ins and outs of how you release your book, what it's like when it's finally out in the wild, their biggest learning lessons, and more.

Our panel:
C.M. Albert: https://www.amazon.com/C.M.-Albert/e/B01CFCT62S
Piper Malone: https://www.amazon.com/Piper-Malone/e/B015WF01MO
And a secret, surprise guest!

After the panel portion, we will discuss how we did with our February writing goals and set and commit to our March goals. With any extra time, we will discuss individual member's writing obstacles.

Saint Paddy's Day Write-In

Online event

— Saint Patrick's Day Edition! If you don't wear green, we'll reach right through the screen and pinch you. —

In this Meetup, we set a timer for 60 minutes and write on our current works in progress. During this time, Erin will be available for free 15-minute author-coaching sessions via Zoom breakout rooms.

Write-In writers have reported the group aspect has really helped them with productivity and that they accomplish so much more during this hour we're together.

It's been a lot of fun watching this group grow. We can't wait for you to join us so we can help you get those words in too!
