Writing With Others

As a writer, I like to hang out with other writers. We inspire each other. We learn from each other. But writing groups aren't all the same. I've belonged to groups filled with wonferful people, but groups that were not critique groups; they were for people writing their family histories. Once you've joined a group and you become friends with its members, it's hard to drop out even when it's not filling your writing needs. But at this point in my writing career, I need critique from my fellow writers. I eventually dropped two groups and joined a small group called the Cedar Creek Writers. These folks meet in homes, hold public readings and go away together for writing retreats. They provide what I need at this time. Visit different groups to find the one that is right for you.
