How cool would it be if there was a place for women writers of all backgrounds to come together, share ideas, learn from each other, and grow in the process?
Wouldn’t it be great if aspiring writers could connect with established ones to gain insight on the process of writing and publishing?
How about two women from different religious faiths sharing their stories about their experience growing up?
Well, there’s something out there just like that and it’s called “She Writes”. I joined this network of female authors, publishers, and bloggers almost a year ago (August 2010) and am enjoying the virtual company of my fellow writers.
Here’s a chance for you to not only join She Writes, but also meet some of the lovely ladies face-to-face at a meet-up near you!
She Writes 2nd Anniversary is coming up on June 29th, 2011 and there are meet-ups being held all over the place! To give you an idea, just in Southern California where I live, I know of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties each having their own meet-ups! That gives you a chance to meet your fellow writers without having to travel too far from where you live.
If you see that there is no meet-up near you, you can start your own. It doesn’t take too much planning! Follow these easy steps to celebrate She Writes 2nd Anniversary:
1. Join She Writes, if you haven’t already (Just do it!)
2. Click here to visit the Volunteer HQ page, where you can find more information about the She Writes celebration. Read the discussions and posts.
3. Click here to find a meet-up near you or create one of your own.
