Wednesday, July 12, 6 to 8 p.m.
Are your friends tired of reading and commenting on your never ending articles or novels? Is the majority of your positive feedback coming from your mother? Have you talked about writing a book for years and are ashamed to say that you have never started it? Maybe you are just stuck on your second chapter or your online posts just not generating any likes or shares. Do you need help with writing content to market your business? Did you wait until the last minute to write a school paper? This is a support group for those that long for realistic but constructive feedback or education. The group includes fiction, non-fiction, technical, blog - you name it. If you wrote it or want to write it, this group is for you! Join us to help yourself and other writers.
The meeting time will be divided up according to the needs and desires of the members.
Group leader, Simone Sander is a technical and marketing writer who specializes in architecture, engineering, and construction. "I have spent the past twenty years writing under tight deadlines and now desire to work on my fiction writing. I would love to share and learn with other writers."
