Why Join a Writers Group?

Here is an article from QWC:

Getting involved with a writers’ group is a fantastic way to find support and assistance with your writing. It is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people and receive valuable feedback on your writing. There are a broad range of writers groups in Queensland that serve various genres, locations and writers. Some writers’ groups operate as critique groups giving detailed feedback, others as a social opportunity to give one another support, motivation, and ideas.
