If you are looking for a sense of community with other local writers then our Google Group is a great place to find that.  The messages can come to your e-mail’s in box either as individual e-mails or a digest–or not at all if you choose to check the messages on the web instead.
If you want to participate in our critique our members will often send the work they will be bringing to the Google group ahead of time (although reading ahead of time is not a requirement for attending).  We also frequently have writing related discussions or inform each other about local writing related events.  If you would rather lurk in the background than get into discussions that is ok, but don’t miss out on lurking on both our website and our Google group!

There are links to our Google group at the top and side of the page.  Don’t put it off, join now.  You won’t regret it.
