We welcome newcomers! Each week we go once around the table to catch up on our progress. Then we go over local upcoming conferences and contests. Each week a member will condense a chapter from a book on the craft of writing and lead us in discussion. Then a spotlighted writer will share their elevator pitch.

The second half of the meeting is split between those who are writing manuscript pages and those in the planning phase (storyboaring). Critiquers are broken into groups of 3 writers each. You’ll have the same critique partners for the duration of your book. Storyboarders spend several weeks planning their book using the Agile Writer Method. Then graduate to the critique group. We find this arrangement instills motivation and accountability.
