This group is for young writers and poets in Vancouver who wish to connect with and learn from like-minded individuals. We welcome artists from all genres, backgrounds, and levels.
Participants will be encouraged to bring in copies of their work so as to receive constructive criticism from the group, but they will also be free to come to discuss literary works, to socialize, or to just hang out.
Meetings will grow and change depending on the needs or preferences of the group.
If you've ever wanted to make friends with other writers, if you've ever wanted to get into writing, or if you've been waiting for the chance to get your work out there, this group is for you.
We're officially back from hiatus!
As always, meetings will be held at Cafe Deux Soleils and will be loosely based around what is seen at professional writers' groups.
Members are encouraged to bring multiple copies (four or five so we can, at the very least, share) of their works of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, etc. The other members will then provide as much or as little feedback as they feel comfortable with. The goal is to help our writers see the relative strengths and weaknesses of their work and to give them greater insight into how to make it even more effective than it already is.
Beyond this, we'll also have time to socialize, have coffee, talk trends, and such.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Hope to see you there!
