Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this insightful guide, more than 30 members of writing groups explain how and why they found a group to join or established their own, how they have kept their group flourishing, and what it has enabled them to accomplish—from simple self-expression to a lifetime of published work. Poets, playwrights, screenwriters, fiction and nonfiction writers, memoirists, and childrens writers share advice on how to give constructive critiques, manage difficult members, delegate responsibilities for maintaining the group, and keep meetings productive. Online groups, international groups, and women-only groups are represented, and a resource section details ways to market and sell finished work and how to parlay one success into a writing career.

Book News Annotation:

Rosenthal, an author and playwright and founder of The Playwrights Collective, a Chicago-based writing group, presents insights from 34 writers of all types who explain how and why they started or joined writing groups and how they have kept their groups going.
