MA - Belmont/Newton/Watertown Area
Are you interested in getting published? Come join like-minded children's authors and illustrators in our now established critique group. We are mostly picture book writers, a few illustrators, and some of us write up through middle grade. There is periodic turnover and I'm happy to bring you in as space becomes available. Contact Drew Dyer at email@example.com if interested.
MA - Berkshires
Do you live in the Berkshires and wonder where all the children's writers are? We did too, so we have started a group that meets at the Lee Library on the first Thursday of the month. On snow days we critique via email. PB, chapter book, MG, or YA, we welcome you and your work. We provide critique and support and share information as we work towards publication. Please contact Barbara Sinopoli at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The Greater Boston Illustrators' Group meets on the second Wednesday of each month in Weston. Contact Sarah Brannen at email@example.com for more information.
MA - Cambridge
A new middle grade critique group is starting in the Cambridge/Somerville area. We will meet twice a month in the evenings or on weekends, depending on when works for everyone. Contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
MA - Concord
We are the Walden Writers, a children's group that meets once a month in Concord, MA. We are looking for a new member to join our group. Ideally this person is already on the writing path. Our group is a mix of authors and author/illustrators and we tend to lean towards picture books, non-fiction and poetry for children and adolescents. We meet on the first Saturday of the month at the Concord Public Library.
We are particularly interested in finding a new member who is actively writing and submitting. If you are a published author - or if you have a drawer full of rejection notices - we welcome you. Please contact Debra Smith email@example.com or Linda Booth Sweeney firstname.lastname@example.org.
Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. Wait list accepted. Contact Joan Walsh at email@example.com For more information go to http://capecodchildrenswriters.com
