Your Goals

What are your goals as a writer? What is your dream? What are you hoping to accomplish?

Maybe you hope to write a book to share with friends and family. Maybe you want to write a best-seller. Perhaps you simply want to do more writing. Maybe you’re the lone writer in your circle of friends and you want to meet other writers.

Given your dreams, consider why are you looking for a writing group. Most people have several reasons for seeking out a group. Here are some examples:

  • Get more feedback on my work
  • Meet and work with writers in a similar genre
  • Make my work strong enough to submit for publication
  • Desire to be accountable; desire for deadlines
  • Become a better writer
  • Become a stronger editor
  • Create a long-term working group of writing colleagues
  • Find beta readers
  • Share support and motivation
  • Encourage one another to share our stories
  • Share pitching, querying and market insights
  • Share my passion for writing
