We’re still writing and Zooming. Staying connected while apart.
Tuesdays 11:00-1:30. Two ways to do it:
- We set our intention for the writing time via email and check back in with the group at 1:30PM.
- Check into the Eastside Writing ZOOM Room via an invitational link. Click here to contact Ethel if you want to join us in ZOOM writing and/or for the email intention.
The Eastside Writing Room is for writing only. We do not critique. We are sharing a bit more than pre-COVID to catch up and “see” each other, but then off to our individual writing places at home and checking back in around 1:15.
It works. A virtual commitment keeps us writing.
Stay safe. Stay sane. Stay healthy.
Ethel Lee-Miller blogs regularly about people, the power of words, and the writing life. She’s retired from professional writing gigs after 30 years of teaching, coaching, editing, and gathering writers to publicly share their work. She is the author of Thinking of Miller Place, and Seedlings, Stories of Relationships. In retirement she’s writing to inspire, to connect with folks, and for the pure enjoyment of it.
I have a relative who is an aspiring writer with a draft book. Does your group encourage sharing chapters and offering members commentary? Do you have openings? Thank you!
Hello Ruth, How exciting to have the dream of writing and to have a draft ready. Our group is not for sharing or critique. Our purpose is to claim time to sit down and write. I haven’t been in a critique and sharing group for a while, so don’t have a bunch of suggestions.
Here are two:
The Write Group of Montclair (NJ) is zooming with more than 30 meetings a month online. When I lived in NJ they were key to my getting support and feedback http://montclairwritegroup.org
Here in Tucson: https://www.writerstudio.com/courses/tucson/ or the writers Studio in NY
Of a more general suggestion: Google “writing support groups in ( the genre in which they write or town where your relative lives)
Sending all good wishes for success
