Welcome to the Write Group




The Write GroupWelcome to the Write Group and our blog. Enjoy your visit and take your time perusing our posts and pages.

Have 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.

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. Between meetings we write; sometimes, we also work at day jobs, enjoy our leisure and spend time with our families.

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.
