12 Meetup Groups match “Writer's Block” near Winnetka, IL
Who are we? We're a group of people from all over NE IL/ SE WI who love to write. Our members come from all backgrounds, representing every stage of the writing process, from beginner to full-time writer. There are no limits on genre. Our members span the board, bringing in non-fiction, fiction, blogs, poems, essays, concept outlines, and so on. Meetings generally consist of members reading pieces they've written. They are then critiqued by the rest of the group. We strive to offer helpful tips …
Welcome fellow writers (or aspiring writers). Whether you are just starting out, coming back to writing after years away, or an accomplished writer this group is for you. We meet the 1st Monday of the month at the Culver's off of I-94 on Hwy 20 in Sturtevant, WI. to discuss ideas, critique work, and encourage one another. Just as with writing, this group is a work in progress and will undergo revisions as needed. We know that you all are busy but to keep our membership current we ask that you ch …

We have members who publish literary fiction, creative non-fiction, children's literature, romance, hard-boiled crime, memoir, travel, poetry, humor and assorted forms of the unclassifiable.

This is a group for anyone interested in starting their novel, finishing their novel, deciding whether to write a novel or a short story. It is for those who want: to critique and be critiqued; to read out loud; to share experiences, etc. All skill levels are welcomed. I started this group because I need the input of other writers to, more confidently, self publish my novels. I am looking forward to helping you do the same and to having you share your publishing experiences with the group.”
You are not alone. You are a part of a multitude of free thinkers, purveyors of the eccentric, odd and out of sorts. You are bohemian, you are insufferable, you are difficult, you are creative... and you are meticulous. You my friend, you are a writer. You were born this way. You were observing, criticizing, organizing, partitioning, petitioning, complimenting, hiding for years and no one saw it and you didn't see it. But there you were, writing in some notebook at 2 in the morning laughin …
First and foremost: We are not a critique group. We are not a workshop group. We are a group of writers who get together to...just write. This is a group that meets to WRITE, to socialize, and to offer encouragement and inspiration to others as we practice our craft. We're focused on the process, not the product. Writing can be a solitary activity...but it doesn't have to be. This is a group where the focus is actually on DOING the work as opposed to critiquing already finished works. I found s …
We will try each of these coffee shops 1. BRIDGEPORT COFFEE HOUSE The coffee-roasting operation on the corner of Morgan and 31st Street is a point of pride for Bridgeport and a source of jealousy for almost every other neighborhood. Housed in a prototypically warm-toned, wood-heavy coffeehouse (only without the fleabag couches and drum-circle vibe), Bridgeport Coffee sets itself apart by roasting its own beans and brewing them with levels of respect usually reserved for presidents. The pour-ov …
Tired of asking any interested party to read your draft? Do you wish for feedback in a face-to-face setting? Are you willing to give as good as you get? Let's find a time that works for us to share our 'little babies.' It could be once a month. We agree to read, reflect, and react to each other's writing in a safe, positive forum with the focus of providing encouragement to keep on moving forward. It might take some negotiating - I'm a stay-at-home Dad who doesn't have most evenings free - but t …

How many times have you had difficulty making a decision because one part of you wanted one thing, but another part of you wanted something else? “A part of me wants to…another part doesn’t.” Conflicting inner 'parts' of ourselves are one of the main obstacles to inner peace and personal power: • Parts of us who want to do new things are blocked by parts who are afraid to take risks. • Parts of us who want to get things done are stumped by parts who procrastinate. • Parts of us who want to be …
