Our little town library is full of readers. But did you know it's also a place where local writers meet to talk about writing and, sometimes, write?
The Write Now writer's group has been meeting at the back table on the first Wednesday night of each month since... well, for many years. The group meets from 7 - 9 pm to learn more about the craft of writing, share ideas, support each others work, offer positive critiques, and catch up with news.
Sharing is the biggest part of the group's informal meetings. But don't think it's all small talk; these are serious writers helping each other towards a goal of getting published.
So what do writers talk about when they get together? Manuscript preparation, publisher's guidelines, setting goals, writer's block, plotting, character development, how to do research, querying an editor... the list is endless. While writers do bring their work to read - and get feedback on - there's no rule that members have to bring something to read each month. Some meetings are question/answer sessions or brain-storming.
Membership is open to any serious writer who is 18 years old or older, and there is a small lifetime membership fee. For more information on membership or visiting the group, contact author Carol Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607-659-7661.
