It's hard to believe the Coffee and Critique writers' group has been going for seven years.
When I founded the group in 2007, along with Lou Turner, we wanted it to be open to writers of all levels, with the motto that critiques would be "candid, but kind."
Each week we have about 10-12 enthusiastic and supportive writer show up, and last year we published our first anthology. We also have encouraged writers to submit to publications -- and all have achieved success!
On our Coffee and Critique blog you can find updates about our group. One popular series is the "Take Ten" interview feature with the our members.
Interviews began last May. Doyle Suit was first, followed by the late Nick Nixon, then Bill Mueller, Alice Muschany, and Lou Turner.
Last week it was my turn to answer interview questions.
This year we will continue the tradition, with one member who has contributed to our anthology being featured each month.
Check back often to the Coffee and Critique blog to find out about some of our members.
