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 fill out the questionnaire here: CCWC Writing Group Questionnaire. Email your completed questionnaire to Rick Cochran (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will work to match you up with the right group.
The current groups of the CCWC are listed below.
