Hey everyone! I created a writer’s circle with meetup.com: the 60047 Creative Fiction & Non-Fiction Writer’s Circle. I think you should check it out, especially if you like writing and live in the Chicago area. It is a great group of people and our focus is for beginner writers, as well as published and professionals. The format is a writing workshop where we are able to critique each other’s submissions and develop our own voice. We welcome ANYONE and EVERYONE! We are also using this group as an opportunity to network and look into the business of writing. We will be copy-editing cover letters and queries, offer suggestions for publishers, and hopefully help one another realize their dreams and goals of becoming published. Additionally, we are looking to round out this group and have it be an introduction into the Chicago literary scene. Events will include poetry readings, book signings, more intense workshops, author events, and even theater for those who are dabbling in play-writing and screen-writing. Please check it out and come join us!
