Writers Support Group

Stronger Together

Writing can be a solitary pursuit. When you come to Vintage Cottage writing classes and events, you’ll be part of a community. Our Writers Support Group brings writers together to share experience, advice, information, and inspiration. We meet at 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month. Click here for our calendar.

Benefits

Writing can be a lonely process, with a learning curve that never ends. When you join our Writers Support Group, you can:

  • Meet fellow writers
  • Make friends
  • Celebrate success
  • Share resources
  • Trade tips and techniques
  • Offer encouragement
  • Ask questions
  • Get feedback
  • Brainstorm
  • Stay motivated
  • Listen
  • Learn
  • Be inspired

Remember

This is a support group, not a critque group.

  • We focus on strengths, not weaknesses.
  • We meet to cooperate, not compete.

What can you expect?

Each meeting follows the same basic format.

  • Welcome. Each meeting begins with introductions and an easy icebreaker questions, like, “What book are you reading right now?”
  • Discussion. We’ll focus on a single topic — how to write your author bio, for example.
  • Practical experience. We’ll spend a few minutes developing a rough draft related to the topic at hand, and then share our results.
  • We’ll close with final thoughts and follow-up ideas.

Price

Admission is free for members of the Vintage Cottage Writers Group, and $10 for future members.
