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 you would like to join a writing group, your first step is to become a CCWC member. JOIN
Next, fill out the questionnaire: CCWC-Writing-Group-Questionnaire. Email your completed questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to match you up with the right group. Due to limited openings within our writing groups, we will do our best to match you with like-minded writers in a group.
