It’s easy to start a writers' group or arrange a meeting with your fellow writers

If you want to get together with other writers on an in-formal basis to critique one anothers' work, network, or just hang out, Quick Brown Fox maintains MeetUp pages to help you organize things.

Just sign-up with the relevant MeetUp group (see below). Then click on
 +Schedule a New MeetUp (right under where it says Welcome writers!) and post the proposed time and place for your get-together and the purpose; e.g. to drink too much coffee or just enough beer and critique each other’s work, or whatever.

You can be as specific as you want, though if you get too specific, it might be hard to find people. So, for example, perhaps you want to start a critique group with other writers of Chapter Books, Middle Grade books or YA. Just say so. There are lots of you out there. 

Or perhaps you'd just like to get together with other writers to talk about writing or to sit and write in one-anothers' company. Go for it.

If you like, send me an email, too, to bring your proposed writers' group or get-together to my attention at
I’ll publicize it on the Quick Brown Fox blog and in the newsletter, too. (That will work best if you give me at least three weeks lead time.)
