Cambridge Writers' Group
Welcome to our writers' group website! The group is intended to be a place to offer feedback on writing projects, practice writing exercises, disseminate information on breaking into the writing business, and serve as a great support resource.
The majority of group members met while students in a writers' workshop during the fall of 2005 and we subsequently became a formal group in January of 2006. Our meetings are 1.5 hours long and are focused on discussing the writers’ works that have been e-mailed to the group ahead of time. We spend roughly 20 -30 minutes discussing each person’s piece, with more time allotted depending on how many works we need to discuss. If time allows, we will spend 15-20 minutes writing exercises or sharing information on the road to publication, depending on what activity is posted beforehand on the online schedule.
In order to give group members optimal time to read each person's peice, we schedule manuscript submission dates two weeks out. Please refer to the manuscript submission schedule for details in your welcome packet.
