57Re: [writing_groups_list] Writing Buddies????
- May 2, 2003I'm looking it up using Yahoo search right now.
The only groups I see listed under writing buddies are
either the F2K group (for folks who were in the F2K
class at http://www.writersvillage.com), a closed
group, and a Christian writer's group. the other
thirteen are essentially fanfiction or hobbyist Yahoo
Let me try "writing partners" now.
for collaborators, from what the page says, this group
was founded on January 20, 2003. It has restricted
membership and email attachments are not permitted.
The group itself averages approximately 3 posts per
month, but I would assume that the members themselves
do their writing without posting it to the group.
Founded December 7, 2002. This is also a group with
restricted membership. It's had 10 posts so far this
month. From the front page:
"I started this group with the hope of gathering
together serious writers of literary fiction. The main
goal of the group will be to match up critique
partners for authors who want to revise their work.
Although it is geared towards literary fiction, all
types of fiction are welcome. All skill levels are
welcome. The only prerequesites are: Be kind, be
willing to search for a critique buddy, and have a
genuine love of writing!"
Founded September 2, 2002, very low activity.
"Writing 101 is a group for writers looking for
writing partners, ideas and beta readers.
Here you can post your stories for critique. Find a
partner to write with or just find someone to beta you
All types of writing and generes are welcome here from
fiction, to fan fiction. Novels to short stories."
Founded October 28, 2001, low group post activity
"I'm a huge fan of Natalie Goldberg and have always
been jealous when she talks about meeting with a
friend to write. This group is designed to help
people meet up with writing partners they can connect
with in real life. Please place an ad that includes
City, State (don't post your address) What you write
How often you want to meet a writing partner"
Founded January 2o, 2000, low group activity level.
"CritPal is a free service for novelists who want to
find critique partners. You do your own "matchmaking"
by placing an ad in The CritPal Post and by checking
the ads others have placed. To facilitate the
process of selection, a sample chapter from each
writer is archived in the CritPal Files. (Only members
have access to The CritPal Post and to the chapters in
Files.) Membership is open to novelists working at any
level of experience--in literary, mainstream, or any
genre. KEYWORDS: critique, critiques, critique
partner, critique partners, novel, novels, novelists,
Founded November 16, 2001; low group activity level.
"This club is for lesbian &; bisexual women that enjoy
creating or reading same gender relationship material
focused through poetry, short stories, &; erotica.
While this club is a great way to share ourselves
through the art of writing, it is also a good place to
make friends &; sometimes even partners. Feel free to
write what your heart desires. This is also a place
where we can share the passion of music together...I
welcome discussions, pictures, lyrics, etc. of your
favorite solo artists/groups whether they fit the
lesbian/bi genre or if you simply enjoy their music."
Founded Aug 12, 2002; low group activity level.
"This is a group for new and established writers in
the Brisbane and surrounding area. The group can be
used as a sounding board for idea's, hooks, and who to
contact once you've finished that script. For more
established writers this might be a good place to
recharge your batteries, helping out a new writer, get
started. Perhaps people can also find writing partners
to help each other. This is your group, I am more than
happy to take it in any direction that the members
want it to go."
WickedCompany � For mystery writers.
--Personally, I love the name of this group. ;-)--
Founded July 10, 2000; moderate activity level, can
range towards the high side. Restricted membership, no
"Mystery is murder for writers!
Discuss crime and mystery writing. Share tips, info,
experiences with your partners in crime--or just
discuss your favorite crime or mystery books. You do
not need to be a published author to join. ALL
mystery/crime authors welcome (POD, short story,
electronic, self-published--this includes YOU!) as
well as readers, reviewers, editors, and people who
turned left after Greenland."
I don't know if these groups will help you any, but at
least it's a step in the right direction.
