A little bit of info for everyone about our writing group and some thoughts from Caro and I.
Our writing group runs on the third Saturday of every month at the bookshop. (Easy right?)
When we talk about the writing industry we are talking about how it works for us here in New Zealand and the pitfalls pertaining to the experience from NZ.
We are a writing group for people writing fiction, non-fiction, children's books, poetry.
If you are interested in screenwriting please talk to me as I can refer you to an excellent screenwriting site that I belong to (in the USA).
Screenwriting: the processes within the film industry are different to writing and submitting books. The one exception being both industries use taglines and log lines.
We are happy to answer any questions pertaining to the writing industry and how to approach people. From time to time we run workshops on various aspects of the industry.
For example ... synopsis and query letter writing.
Both are still very important to this industry.
Ask us if you'd like a workshop on any subject within the industry. We will happily set that up.
Also happy to run workshops on storytelling, creative writing, blog writing, and anything else writing-related that you can think of. Just ask!
And be warned: :)
