What Happens at a Writer’s Group?

I’ve never been a member of a local writer’s group, and I have no idea if there are any around here. I haven’t looked into it. So, basically, I don’t know what really goes on at one. I have a vague idea. Writers meet, discuss their writing, maybe get advice. But do they share their work? What exactly do they do?

Are you a member of a local writer’s group? If you are, then what do you do at a meeting? What kind of places do you meet? Are there any relatively well-known authors? What are the benefits of joining a writer’s group?

Please let me know in the comments below. I’m wondering if I should join one after we get to Canada.

Choose My Best Instagram Photos – Round 1, Group 26

I think you’re going to like one picture in this group. I have a strong feeling about it. Just perfect timing with very funny results. Coming soon (not yet in these photos), the quality will increase dramatically as I started using other apps to bring out the colours better. But sunsets still have strong colours. You’ll see one here, too!

The rules are simple. I post 10 of my Instagram photos every few days, and you get to vote on your favourites. It’s multiple choice, so please vote for 2 to 4 photos (3 is ideal). Leave a comment saying why you voted the way you did. The poll comes after the photos.

Here are the photos.
