Benefits of belonging to local writing group.



If you are a struggling writer, join a group to get yourself motivated and stay that way.



Writing is a solitary activity and belonging to a group forces you to relate to real people rather than the characters in your mind and provide you with a built-in network of other writers who can understand and support your work.


  • Support from other writers that can help your story come to life.

  • Friendly atmosphere, in a comfortable setting, here all members have the same goal to be published.

  • Education by the study of craft, writing programs presented by other professionals.


  • To reach your goals of selling, you have to develop a thick skin from criticism; you can learn how to do this by your peers in a safe environment, to finish the novel you are working on.


Finally, a writing group will help to validate you as a writer.
