Your writing group is more than just a collection of folks gathered together in a bunch. They're your first readers. Your community. Your circle of writers who will encourage you from the first page through publication and beyond. February is a month for connection: find your people at the Writing Group Matchmaking Event at CLE Urban Winery on Wednesday, Feb 5 from 6:30-8:30pm.
Literary Cleveland is partnering with Brandi Larsen to host this fun event. Come enjoy a glass of wine and meet writers who are ready to create a writing circle. Brandi will share tips on how to give feedback and strategies for a successful writing group. Similar to speed networking, you’ll rotate around the room meeting potential writing group partners. Matches will be sent following the event. Bring one page of writing that represents your work.
