In the Matrix

Most people think of writers as reclusive loners.

While I suppose writers are introspective and some are shy, the writers I know like to meet, talk, read and even write as a group. This last Friday the Lewis County Writers Guild met at the Matrix Coffeehouse in Chehalis. The meeting started around five in the afternoon with social and eating time. Then, about 6:00 the meeting moved in a somewhat more formal direction. Author and member Jennifer Vandenberg presented an excellent talk on how writers can use social media sites like, Wattpad, Facebook, Goodreads to expand marketing exposure. She also talked about how to use WordPress to build a platform.

Most meetings of the guild are critique sessions, but the third Friday of the month is a more relaxed and social meeting.

The next critique meeting is this Friday, March 27th, at 5:00 pm. The next regular meeting is April 17th. If you’re a writer, or want to be, come and meet other writers.
