MA - Holliston
A writers group is starting up in Holliston, MA. We plan to meet about once a month at the Holliston Public Library to chat about writing joys and challenges, network, and perhaps share some work. This will not be a formal critique group, but rather about forming a local writing community. Writers for both children and adults are welcome. If you're interested, please email me off list and I'll include you when we settle on our next meeting date.

MA - Somerville
Our critique group is looking for a new member! We are trying to keep our group membership at 5, since we have found that number works well for us. We are especially looking for someone who is working on a longer middle grade manuscript of YA project at the moment.
Our group meets on the second Sunday of each month in Davis Square. There is both parking and public transit. Our members have varying experience in the kid lit field. Some of us have been published, others have not. We all love writing!
