The Writer's Compass is a virtual space where you can pose writing-related questions and explore new routes through your creative blocks. At each small-group session, we invite you to share your current writing challenges and get input from fellow writers about how to move through them.
Who should participate
If you're an experienced fiction or non-fiction writer working on a book and/or a large-scale writing project, this group is for you.
It's also for you if:
- you've published work (not a must, but a plus) - you regularly take courses and/or participate in groups to grow your writing skills - you're passionate about language and literature - you're burning to tell a story and share your ideas - you're hungry for knowledge to advance your writing - you're open to experimenting with new ways to deepen your writing practice - you're willing to share what works and what doesn't work in your writing practice
What you'll gain
- Support and encouragement from fellow writers - The opportunity to learn from creative peers - Ideas to help you move through Resistance and face your creative challenge(s) - Motivation to return to the page
There's no fee for these sessions, and they're limited to groups of no more than 5 attendees. This way, we all have a chance to share what we're working on, what our challenges are, and get some (hopefully) useful feedback on how to face what's holding us back.
The fine print
We'll ask you to confirm your RSVP 48 hrs before each session. Since space is strictly limited, and since the no-show rate on Meetup is notoriously high, we want to be sure to hold spots for those who commit to showing up. Those who don't adhere to this rule (aka last minute no-shows) will be informed and automatically placed on the waiting list at subsequent meet-ups.
