Hello,

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.

Interested?

If you are interested in who we are and what we do, check out Our Story in the menu above.

The Write Group

Proposing a Writing Group Month in October

Good writing transports readers into the imaginations of writers and fuels the imaginations of the readers. Reading and writing link people who love and enjoy shared storytelling, writing and creation. Further, writing improves the more writers read, write and share.

October is Reading Group Month, when people recognize, foster, promote and celebrate the shared reading, study and discussion of great writing.

I propose it should also be Writing Group Month. Writing groups work hand in hand with reading groups. Writing groups link people who love and enjoy shared writing, study and discussion.

Have you a story or message you want to write? Have you writing you want to share? Do you want development, writing, editing, publishing and marketing advice, and your writing critiqued? Do you want to help other writers with constructive feedback?

Join a writing group. Recognize Writing Group Month this October.

Catch your spark. Fan your urge. Inspire your muse. Commune with fellow writers — poets, prosaists, fiction writers, nonfiction writers. Celebrate the joy of shared writing.

Start writing. Keep writing.

May your muse and your writing group guide you,
Shawn
