Get It Write Blog Group


The ‘Get It Write’ blog group is almost a year old - bless its cotton socks!

We presently have 13 members, but because the criteria is that we only have to post ‘something’ four times a year – we need to increase membership. So we are opening the doors to anyone who may find an on-line writing group beneficial.

A Bit About The Group


We are mixed bag of members; some of us are published, some not; some of us are qualified, some not, some are completely new to the writing game, some not. We are Womag Writers, Poets, Article Writers, More Literary Types, Chick-Lit Writers... etc... etc...

The idea of the group is to put a maximum of one piece on the blog per month (and a minimum of four pieces a year)for critique by other members - it can be any form of writing. Additionally, you have to be prepared to critique the work of any writer who has taken the time to critique yours.

It’s a little like a face to face writers’ group, gone cyber!

If you are interested in joining, do email me (my email address is on my profile) or comment below with your contact details and I will contact you. I will need to ask you a few questions about yourself – purely for the security of the group.

Please respond quickly if you're interested - as I will need to cap membership at 18!

Thanks

Edit: 27th May 2010 - We now have a full house of 18 members. But I will keep a waiting list, if anyone else shows an interest.

Is there room for a somewhat illusion-shattered SF and crime/thriller wannabe writer?

Amanda said...

There are two spaces left, Captain Black - drop me an email and I'll send you some info - be great to have you on board! :-)

Happy birthday Get it Write! I didn't know the rules were at least 4 times a year! I thought it was monthly and that's why I dropped out earlier this year. I am so der...

Yes, it used to be once a month, DJ – but with time it became clear not everyone had the time to post every month – hence the increase in members and slight change of criteria.

Email me if you ever want to come back. X
