The CCWC offers a variety of Writers Groups, open to members only. These are small groups of writers who meet regularly to share their work and enhance skills in a supportive atmosphere. During sessions, writers read from their work and fellow members comment upon its strengths and offer suggestions for improvement.
If there is sufficient interest, we will be forming one or more new groups in the fall of 2013.
The current groups of the CCWC are listed below. If you would like more information about any of our groups, please contact contact Tom Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
