New Writers Group in Dublin

Michael emailed me about a new writers' group in Dublin. I've said before that a writers' group is a great way of progressing your writing. It's a deadline. There are other people who will read your work and comment on it. You don't have to take everything said as gospel but be prepared to listen. No one's work is perfect. After a group has met for a while, you'll get to know the others' foibles. Don't try and please all the people all the time. No one can.

Here's Michael. Please forgive him the pun!

Write Now is a new, Dublin based, writers' group looking for writers of all kinds to join us. Our first meeting will be in Accent's Tea And Coffee Lounge, Leason Street on Friday the 21st of October at 7:30pm.  If you write poetry, prose, plays, pamphlets or post it notes we want you to come along! All ages and levels of experience are welcome! We will be reading and discussing group members' work with the aim of improving our writing through constructive criticism. We see this as a chance to develop work in a supportive yet critical environment.

So if you're working on that great novel, tinkering on a sonnet or just thinking about writing more then come along!

Our Facebook event page is here or you can email queries to mdineen [at] gmail.com
