“I feel a great deal of support from the group. We aren’t here to criticize, and that’s wonderful because the world already does that. It’s a great place to bounce ideas around and get the creative juices flowing. For me, it’s also a great way to be accountable. When I know there are people that are interested in my work and invested in my characters, and in me, it really helps me keep going, especially on the days when I’m having a tough time getting anything down. This isn’t a critique group. It’s a ‘throw spaghetti at the page’ group.”

— G. Pearl Kilgore, Author
