One of my favorite things about being a writer is the incredible community I have discovered. I never in a million years expected to find friends, colleagues, or writing partners when I started writing for children a few years ago.
Recently, I joined the Afterglow Book Review blog as a contributor. It's an incredible group of writers and bloggers who love books. We're hosting a big blowout Beginning of Summer Spectacular starting on Monday (5/23). Thanks to the energy of Jen Daiker, the crew is hosting a giant giveaway--check it out and enter to win some fabulous prizes.
There are lots of ways to band together with other writers.
1. Write with Tina Laurel Lee in the Practice Room.
2. Critique with friends at Critique Circle.
3. Form your own critique group (online or in person) (NESCBWI Critique Group Resources)
4. Go to a workshop or a conference--it's great to meet other writers!
Share your other methods of banding together!
