Writing Groups: Open Genre

Back to all writing groups

Allsorts Writing Group

We are a supportive, vibrant, intelligent and highly skilled bunch of writers. We write for the desire to create and express our own unique perceptions and voice. Our goal is to support each other by producing up to 2000 words of writing each month, which is then given positive and constructive critique in a workshop situation.  We are open to all genres of work and encourage supportive feedback in an encouraging atmosphere.
