We are a collection of writers who want to share the passion of writing with other wonderful, friendly, and talented writers. If you are new to writing or a published author, this group offers an enormous amount of information and helpful feedback from free beta readers who want to help you improve your writing.
During each meeting, attending members will share an unpublished 1000 word (1-2 pages)writing sample of any genre or format, from manuscripts, short stories, novels, poems, screenplays, memoirs, etc. Samples are read aloud, followed by a 7-10 minute constructive critique on the piece by the other attending members. If you do not feel comfortable reading aloud, please bring copies of the sample for the group to read to themselves (Printed copies should have continuous lines and be at least size11 font). *Those new to the group are welcomed to sit in and not share a sample for their first visit.
In addition to free beta reading, we host discussions and workshops that explore other areas of writing such as book proposals, finding literary agents, independent publishing and more.
Members are welcomed and encouraged to suggest and/or host meetings. Remember to check social/ spam email folders regularly for updates. Write on!
*Members who do not attend any meetings within 6 months will be removed from the group but can rejoin at any time.
