A group for Story Planner users to discuss story structure, character plans and more. This group is for anyone who likes to plan their novel before they write a draft. It suits writers who use structure methods such as Save the Cat, three act structure, or similar plans to outline their novel. The group aims to offer online critique so members can submit outlines and plots for feedback if they choose. Members can help each other to create a well-structured outline for their novel.
Writers Of Whitstable is a friendly writing group, with the serious aim of helping its members become better writers. We're a feedback group, so writers share stories or novel chapters a week before the meeting. When we meet we discuss the work and share thoughts and suggestions for how to improve the story in the next draft. We meet at a local pub in Whitstable, the beautiful seaside town in Kent.
Free your imagination.
Now online, the Original Writers Group meets every Tuesday evening on Zoom from 7 to 9 pm GMT.
We have many members: poets, novelists, playwrights, scriptwriters, historians, philosophers. It is a rich mix and makes a lively evening. Bring your work, whether these are short stories, poems, essays or just ideas and join us for an evening of chatting, sharing, planning, commiserating, pontificating - and all things about writing. This is the perfect place to workshop your writing.
Even if you are just starting out and are just interested in writing, come along and experience the evening. As sometimes the best motivation to write is to hear how others got there before you.
Occasionally writers ask if they can read from their published work. This doesn't work for us as part of the enjoyment for listeners is in giving feedback. A published book is like a word carved in stone. There is nothing we can say. And that, as they say, is most disappointing. So we stick to work in progress, whether that is a first or tenth draft. That's when the group works best- both for the writer and the listener.
