A group of writers in and around Schaumburg, IL, dedicated to writing and perfecting our craft. We also give each other support in our writing efforts.

We meet once a week, discuss up to four pieces of work (no more than 3000 words) submitted by end of day each Thursday.  Each of us attending a meeting will download the submitted works and critique the writing for discussion on our meetup day (currently Saturday in the morning).

We discuss the writing submitted to the group with a definite focus on publication as a final goal for the work.  However, anyone seeking to find their voice through writing is welcome request membership.  We want to focus on the writing itself.  Not so much on the subject of that writing.  We don't prohibit any subject, nor any style of writing.  Of course, we meet in a public setting, so we have to respect that somewhat.

Due to the venue where we meet, and to the size of submissions that we permit, we try to keep our membership under 40 writers.  If we don't see any activity from you in recent meetups, we may remove your membership.  You will be welcome to request to join again.  Message any of the organizers of the meetup if you have any questions.
