Writing Groups

One of the most frequent questions I get in person and on-line is how to find a writing group. I found my first writing group by randomly walking into a coffeeshop and noticing two women doing writing practice. I walked right up and asked if I could join them. My second writing group I formed by putting signs up at libraries and coffeehouses.

Folks find each other in more ways that you can imagine. Often, after my classes, folks will hang around and exchange phone numbers or email addresses. People meet at book signings and conferences. There are meetups and Facebook groups.

If you’re not that bold, check out the list of ongoing writing groups on my website. This is not a complete list of course. Many groups are private. But don’t fret. If you keep looking and asking, eventually you will find a clan of your own.
