WTF: WRITERS TO FRIEND - Writing Critique & Goalsetting

In a world where the fun fact may be another writers’ group hiding under your next bottled ice tea cap, we recognize that there are many choices when it comes to fulfilling your writing needs - or not.

Right now, maybe you’ve put your dreams on hold rather than honing your craft and getting your work out there! Maybe you don’t have the time to write and do have the excuses, but spend the wee hours writing anyway - for readers who just aren’t around! Maybe you’ve considered taking a course or joining a group that types for an hour or two and then goes home with hardly a word spoken.

Hey, that’s not what you have in mind.

Where is your support? Where are your friends? Where’s the fun? Where might one look?

WRITERS TO FRIEND would be found under one of those bottle caps, but we hope to provide something special for our members that goes beyond, because we are also among those who live with this never dying need to write and we strive to be those supportive friends.

We are a core of a few dedicated writers with varied careers and backgrounds who are all committed to our own writing and the writing of our co-members.

We are each striving for our mutual and individual writing success. We aim to encourage our members with:

• constructive and supportive critiquing
• an environment fostering realistic goalsetting
• providing an ever growing list of resources and competitions
• special social events so we can keep human & be alive in order to bring our
writing dreams to fruition.

We are WRITERS TO FRIEND - For writers from everywhere who share these values. For those who write prose - fiction & nonfiction; short stories; journaling; poetry & poetic prose.

WE ASK THAT WHEN REQUESTING TO JOIN, YOU SUBMIT A SAMPLE PIECE OF APPROXIMATELY 5OO WORDS THAT IS REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR WRITING.
