The Writers’ Hangout

THE WRITERS' HANGOUT

Welcome to SCWA's newest offering: The Writers' Hangout. Our mission is a place where SCWA members and people interested in writing can discuss writing and how it is affecting their lives. All are welcome.

We'll meet online each Friday from 4:30 to 5:30 pm PT. Each week will have a theme. For example, Technical Basics, Genres, Beta Readers, and Editors. People will bring their question or issue, state it in about 20 words, and then other attendees can offer input, information, and suggestions.

You don't have to feel like you are alone in your writing life by talking with others who can help you develop your work. We hope you'll join SCWA Board Member Jim Takos this week and subsequent Fridays when we meet and talk about writing with the goal of helping each other out.

Here are the details:
