Writing

I joined a writing group a couple of years ago in Seattle.  We met weekly at a local coffee house where I learned the value of such a group.  Each week we would write for about 45 minutes and then each member of the group had an opportunity to do a reading and get constructive feedback.

The writers in our group were all working on a variety of projects from memoirs, novels, poetry and science fiction.  Getting feedback on your writing is a valuable tool, especially if you work on a piece for several meetings.  The writer gains the perspective of his or her readers, learns where modification might be necessary and what the reader finds compelling.

Besides writing, these groups are also helpful on sharing advice as to where to publish, find an agent or where to take classes.  As writers we can help each other succeed.  If there is not a writing group in your area, you can always start one.
