Writers group seeking new members!

The Writing Snippets crew is looking to add one or two new members to our monthly writers group. If you live in north Utah County or south Salt Lake County, or wouldn’t mind driving further afield once a month, you might fit the bill.

We meet one Saturday evening a month for anything from four to six hours. We all exchange 20 pages of material 1-2 weeks in advance for critiquing. We spend 1/2 of every meeting critiquing, 1/4 eating and visiting, and 1/4 having our own writer’s support group! We are seeking only serious writers – already published (self-published counts) or actively working toward publication (writing, editing, submitting, querying). If you fit that qualification and feel like that schedule and format would work for you, please email us at writingsnippets (at) gmail (dot) com. Include your name, a short writer’s biography, and any other information that you think would be pertinent. If you sound like a good fit, we’ll ask for a brief writing sample.

Even if this would be your second group, we welcome you to contact us.

And for those who live too far away for our in-person meetings, we are trying to figure out the logistics of starting a supplementary online-only critique group. We’re not sure what format this will take, yet, but we already have two interested writers. If there is enough interest, we’ll try to get something going by early this fall. If you are interested in an online-only group, please email at the above address and put “online writing group” in your subject line.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

    I wish I didn’t live so far away! I would join request to join in a moment! I’m doing some online writing groups, but that can be a challenge for me. I want to be able to interact and ask direct questions and bounce ideas around immediately.

    Since I’m working full time on music and writing right now, I have the time, but since I’m working full time on music and writing, I don’t have gas money (or much of any kind of money…). If I can find a way to make it work, I’ll be in touch. I need a serious professional writing group, especially for my MG fiction.

      We wish you could come, Chas! Be in touch in you can find a way. One of us does drive over 2 hours round trip to join us each month, so it’s not impossible. But yes, gas is expensive these days. Let us know!
