For the first time in my life, I was recognized on the street for writing—and critiquing. A young woman read my blog about writing and asked how I began and how I keep going. I told her the following…
I coordinate and create critique groups for Writers of Kern, the local branch of CWC. Nestled between oil and agriculture, the San Joaquin Valley has produced a new generation of writers, and critique members.
Writers of Kern is the only professional club in the nation who offer its members the quality and quantity of critique groups—complimentary to all members.
Each group meets in person (or via skype) where each writer’s work is discussed, dissected and then heralded.
No other club holds club sanctioned critiques with each group consisting of vetted writers at an appropriate level of skill. No other club supports the critique leaders with biannual instruction. No other club holds an advanced group for that final polish before submitting to agents and editors.
Between blog challenges, writer contests and conferences—Writers of Kern wants nothing but your success. Come, join us in our ambitious adventure to change the way we write, the way we critique and the way we support each other.
