Writers Groups by Kristi Bradley

Writer’s groups can be an acquired taste. Some swear by them. Others swear at them.

I tried on several groups, had a few bad experiences, too, before I found a good fit with Malice in Memphis Mystery Writers. I didn’t consider myself a mystery writer at the time, but I was intrigued by the talent in the group and the temptation of a publication credit they offer their members by issuing anthologies.

So, don’t be afraid to try out a writers’ group. Walk away if it doesn’t feel right or doesn’t fit your needs, and try another. It might take some time to find what you’re looking for. You might even have to start your own. Some of our members drive an hour and a half to reach us.

It makes a world of difference to associate with like-minded people who understand the trials of the business and the voices in our heads.
