What we're about
We are a small, core group of eight writers experienced in the art of reading, writing, and critiquing. We're serious, committed, published (or publishable) writers who want the structure of a group to keep us writing, submitting, and publishing.
Most us work in and have at least one degree in a writing-related field. Some of us have advanced degrees, usually MFAs in creative writing. We are a mixed group of poets, fiction, and nonfiction writers.
If you want to join, a writing degree certainly helps--everyone is at the same base level of knowledge, if not skill--but a degree isn't a requirement. If you're interested, shoot me an e-mail. I'll ask for a writing sample that's representative of your work to pass by the group.
We meet every Tuesday night at my place (East Downtown) at 6:00 p.m.
Note: We only keep this group on Meetup for the one time of year that we have an opening. We don't use it for anything else.
Me: I'm a published writer with an MFA in creative nonfiction (memoir and essay mainly but also a little poetry), have taught creative writing, lit, and comp, and do tech writing/editor for a living. I've been writing since I first picked up a pencil about 40+ years ago but have only been serious about my writing for the last 20 or so years.
