Creative Lotus

This writing group will focus on whatever the members need at the time. If we all feel umotivated to do our WIP we can do writing prompts or flash fiction. The point of this group is to schedule time to focus on creativity and writing. There is no long term goal or project needed. 

Time can be spent on editing, writing, discussing, or anything.

Fictionalization

Let's imagine an online writing group that shares honest critique and fierce support. We're intrigued by fiction that is formally experimental and technically ambitious. We seek companions for wide discussion and close reading. We have things to say--about gender, race, disability, and more--and we envision a literature and a community where we'll be heard.

Lost For Words

While I am most comfortable with poetry, as that is mostly what I write currently, this group is open to any genre of creative writing as means to help others and diversify my own creations. It can't be helped that I created the group for lack of other poetry groups with space. With that in mind, I would like this group to be a partnership of all members creating topics and interests together. We can start with prompts for meetings, or issues, or what have you. Please contact me if you have any more questions.

Making Time

I'm interested in starting a group for those of us managing to make writing a priority alongside our hectic lives--jobs, children, partners, households, all the daily things that provide the excuses not to exercise our creative muscles. I'm looking for fellow writers to bounce ideas off of, do some workshopping with, read with, and share tips with on how we all manage our schedules!
