In the shop we occassionally meet people who write SF or Fantasty and are interested in participating in a genre writers' group. We refer them to the Infinitas Writers' Group which meets in the shop on the 3rd Saturday of each month, see the menu left for details. The Infinitas Writers' Group has been active for many years and continues, however, there is room for another group, of different, complementary dynamic.
I imaging a group with goals of encouraging new writers, with an emphasis on short stories.
Any writers' group needs a way to share text. I imagine short stories could be shared via a closed forum needing password access. Each story would have its own topic with comments posted as replies.
If the group is to physically meet regularly, I suggest a Thursday evening or a midweek morning, meeting in the shop. This would open it to those who cannot attend Saturday meetings.

Officially expressing interest! I'd like to meet IRL too, depending on the time chosen.

Good to hear. We need several starters to get the first meeting going. Do you know possible recruits?

Sorry, Tim, don't know anyone else. Maybe I'll have to figure out how Yahoo works and join the current writers' group instead.
