I´ve written an earlier post about the membership i had in one of the writing groups at Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Center in Perth, Australia. Since I came back to Sweden I actually created an entirely new group for writers. There was no such thing where I live, so I simply put up some notes at the stores and outside the library asking if there are any other writers who would like to meet to share their writing.
Today I ´m a member of that writing group named The StoryMakers. We are a group of adults who met and created that group together, from scratch. We meet to share our writing with other authors, to listen to what others have written and to give and get constructive feedback. But we always start with some tea or coffee, a cake, before we read for each other. Our members are from 18 years of age and up, and we write everything between heaven and earth – short stories, haiku, biographies, prose and so on.
For me it feels enormously constructive and developing to socialize with other authors within this warm forum The StoryMakers have become. I get all this wonderful feedback, I´m improving as a writer while developing friendships with other like-minded people. We are close to eachother, having a lot of fun together. Read more about us in Swedish: The StoryMakers. And Clairepeek is one of our members, visit her blog written in English to get some really good pieces to read. She will twist your mind!
