Southington Writers

You've written a great story. Now what?

I would love to connect with other Southington area writers-I can't be the only writer here. Maybe form a writers' group that could meet at the library one evening a week to share writing, give feedback, discuss writing topics, have speakers come?

I write fiction and have had several short stories published. In December 2011 I finished my first novel (womens fiction). In January 2012, I began the arduous task of perfecting my synopsis, pitch, and query letter. Last October I (finally) signed with a literary agent!  I was thrilled. I was getting a little worried; afraid I'd have to research the whole self-publishing thing... 

I'd love to hear from anyone who wants to take their writing to the next level!

Hi Karoline, Through the years, I've often thought it might be nice to have a writer's sharing group that could meet periodically. The library would be a great venue for it. I refer you to my profile on Patch and if you're interested I would be willing to explore participating with people such as you who are serious about writing even though not yeet published.
