This is a place to connect with writers and writers groups according to your goals, genre(s) and geographic location. Writing is often lonely work, and we need to be in community as creative people. Being a part of a group that shares a creative interest is often just the sense of community a writer needs.
Yet not all writers groups are created equal. Some writers crave a community that provides regular writing prompts and opportunities to generate new work. Other writers seek a safe space where they can receive respectful but honest feedback on their work-in-progress. Still others love a scene where like-minded creatives read their work out loud.
Enter the Writers Group Network. For a nominal fee, this is your home to find other writers in your area who share similar objectives, writers who can help you hone your work and keep you accountable to the regular task of writing.
You will answer a series of questions in the form of a survey intended to help you clarify your objective for joining a writers group and match you with other writers in your area who share similar objectives. Upon completing the survey, you will be entered into the writers group database. Every effort will be made to match you with one or more people whose objectives for a writers group are similar to yours. As soon as one or more people match at least two of your qualifications, you will be notified via email and asked to pay the one-time membership fee of $20 to be connected with them. I will continue to send names your way as they come.
This minimal fee will keep your name in the writers group database until you have found and joined a writers group that you love. The membership fee includes some awesome writers resources and SWAG, based on WGN's motto: "... but first, WRITE!"
Once you are matched with other writers who share writing goals similar to yours, it is up to you as a group to decide how to proceed. I will follow up with you at that point to offer some ideas, but feel free to make the group your own!
