Why should I join a Writing Group?

Writers at every stage of their careers from beginners to seasoned best-selling authors benefit from feedback about their work from other practicing writers. Many published novelists will tell you that writing groups taught them how to write – from basic sentence structure and grammar, to sensational characters, pacing and plots. As a member of a writing group, you surround yourself with like-minded writers who come together regularly for a single purpose: to give and receive feedback about works in progress. There are different types of writers groups with different goals, so visit a few until you find one that works for you.
