Welcome! Introduce yourself to us:

Hi. I'm new here & like people. I've raised 5 kids & have now started on raising a 6th-- me! I love reading because of the diversity it allows me to experience. Writing puts me in a very vulnerable position. It exposes my strengths & inadequacies to others... but it is because other writers have risked this exposure that my life has been so enriched. I am thankful for all these 'gifts' I have been given by others.

Talk about writing a moment:

Words have a magic to them that I can't define. I want to be able to create those magical moments when for some inexplicable reason those black & white lines come alive. Right now I feel more like a 2-year old trying to master crayons-- the color and lines just don't look anything like the cat in front of me. In fact I can't even write the first letter of my name or even make it stay in the lines!

What would you like to get out of this group?

Courage, shared laughter, accountability, encouragement, a safe place for kind yet critical honesty, inspiration from some amazing women.

How did you find us?

Browsing meetups.


Hi. I just recently moved to Winston-Salem. I'm looking for diversity, creativity, interesting & stimulating interaction with kindred spirits who find that their souls too are deeply affected by the written word & other forms of communication.

What Grace is saying about this Meetup Group

So good to see those able to attend and enjoy some time together.
