Groups for writers to discuss and workshop?

laptop keyboardJoe emails:

Do you know any fiction writers groups in the Capital Region, who meet to discuss their work and workshop?

Outside perspective can be a help when working on some sort of creative effort. And there are certainly communities of writers in this area, so we wouldn't be surprised to hear if there are groups -- ranging from the formal to the less so.

Have a suggestion for Joe? Please share!

The National Novel Writing Month writers have extended their writing/workshops beyond November. There are monthly-ish meetings around the Albany/Clifton Park/Wilton area. You can check out updates in this FB group. The FB group, itself, is pretty helpful/supportive too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/576015152460015/

Also, depending on your style of writing, there is a screenwriters group that meets the last Sunday of every month at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy. The group is on Meetup.com. It's free and very interesting.

The New York State Writers Institute offers community workshops each semester -- deadlines for Spring 2014 (fiction and poetry) are next week!

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
