Writers Groups-- Video: Eight Tips for Having a Successful, Productive Meeting #writersgroups #writers #tipsforwriters


Tips and Topics for Writers

Hello and Welcome to the Focused on Story Blog!
 I am J. Q. Rose. 

Today I'm sharing a video I created about Tips for having a successful, productive Writers Group meeting.

I've been in several groups that have helped me grow in my writing, learning a lot about publishing and discovering wonderful resources to help me. If you want to attend or establish a writers group, check with your local library or bookstore. Contact local authors to find out if they would be interested in getting together at the local restaurant or library room.

I would never be a published author if I didn't have the support from my writers group that met at the local coffee shop--the Koffee Kuppe. When we four began meeting, none of us were published. In only a few years, we all had traditionally published books! 

All of my groups have been in-person, but there are ways to find groups online. Google "find writers groups."  Many Facebook groups concentrate on a specific area such as mystery, romance, memoir, etc. Search for them on Facebook.

Below is the video with 8 tips for conducting a writers group meeting. This video will give pointers on how to conduct a meeting so each participant will be anxious to get back to writing.
