IWOSC’s Satellite groups offer a good introduction to a community of writers. Each Satellite group is different but all are open to members and non-members.
If you are looking for a more intensive group, where members read and critique each others’ writing, one of our critique groups might be the next step for you.
Groups form around a small number of writers willing to help others and who are open to receiving honest critique from their fellow writers.
If you are interested in learning more about how to participate in a critique group, please email the IWOSC office (info at iwosc.org) with the words “Critique Group” in the subject.
