Online Writer’s Circles

Join a small circle of dedicated writers who will encourage, provide specific feedback, and inspire you. Your group will be facilitated by a pro-writer and mentor through an online video chat. In each session, you will:

  • play games and do activities that will help you develop your characters, the world of your story, and your plot.
  • share and discuss pieces of your writing project.
  • look at the writing of your peers and share what you love and what you wonder.
  • build close reading skills, and learn to discuss creative work in a way that supports another writer while also helping you to grow your own skill set.
  • discuss and explore at least one practical strategy to strengthen your writing craft.
