Welcome to the Write Group




The Write GroupHave you ever had an urge to write or had something you wanted to tell to many people? Have you ever wanted to share your work before it was done to get feedback on it? Have you ever wanted to educate or entertain others, and get support and encouragement from others trying to do the same thing? Or have you ever wanted to write just for the enjoyment of it, for your own pleasure?

We have and we still do. So we formed a club for writers, a club of writers, a club of people, just like you, who gather in a story circle and share and talk about writing.

Welcome to the Write Group.

The Write GroupThe Write Group is a community of writers who mutually share and discuss our poems, stories, novels, essays, columns, articles, histories, memoirs, how-tos and the craft of writing. We are essentially storytellers and storymakers.

This blog is our attempt to reach out to our members and the public. We offer prompts, competitions, market information, events local and specific to us, our newsletter, our Write Group Daily newspaper, our member posts, our Twitter feed, and other material and resources.
