Writing Group

Over the last few years, I’ve drifted in and out of writing groups in the Philadelphia and Scranton areas. Some of them merely dissolved because the group’s members either moved away or just stopped writing. Some of them I left because they were more like group therapy sessions. But once I finished graduate school, I knew I needed a writing group in order to keep writing and gather feedback on my poetry.

I’m now part of a writing group that I enjoy. We meet the first and third Monday of every month at the Vintage Theater, located at 119 Penn Ave. in downtown Scranton. This group is only a few months old, but thus far I’m impressed by the feedback different members of the group give each other’s work. I also enjoy the age range of people that show up. So far, we’ve had high schoolers, college students, and middle-age folks working on memoirs or poetry collections. We’ve even had some folks bring their application essay for graduate school. So, if you’re looking for a writing group, I recommend this one. All genres are welcome, and again, we meet the first and third Monday of every month at the Vintage Theater, starting at 7 p.m.
