A friend of mine is changing careers and is interested in fufilling her dreams of being a writer. She has been attending a writers circle group every week that gives her feedback on her work and she really likes it. I am not as talented as she is, but even someone like me has interest in improving my writing and getting new ideas and feedback. These groups are great for networking as well. There are online versions of these round table writing groups too. The writer’s circle at http://www.mywriterscircle.com/ has been going since 2005 and has thousands of members online. I am going to take a look and see if there is anything on the bulletin board that is a help to me too.
