Springs Writers May Critique Group Meets This Saturday

Someone related an interesting perception regarding who attends our critique groups. Is the Springs Writers critique group only for people who write books?
It’s for any writer—whether you blog, write web content, pen 100 word articles or 100,000 word books or family memoirs.

Do you …
  • want to brainstorm a book idea in a confidential, creative setting?
  • wonder how to get rid of passive verbs, adjectives and adverbs but don’t know how change empty words into an active, powerful statement or question?
  • question how to apply writing skills pointed out by the speakers to your writing?
  • have your book written, but need to figure out chapter formatting or write a query or book proposal?
  • want to improve your writing and editorial skills to be a compelling communicator?
A critique group bolsters your confidence to put your thoughts, feelings, ideas, and stories swirling in your head and heart onto paper. Springs Writers fiction and nonfiction critique groups focus on encouragement, support, insight, feedback, and editorial and marketing input to turn writing dreams into polished, marketable writing skills.
Feeling too scared, insecure or intimidated to attend?

That’s normal.
From concept to written word to publication, a critique group provides a mini-focus group of readers to inspire you. Writing doesn’t have to be a solitary journey. Do you want someone cheer you on to express your voice and God-given talent? Join others pursuing the passion to write. Springs Writers is here to serve you.
