    Dear Alison Nissen… I’ve been debating attending a writer’s meeting for quite some time now but have yet to make an appearance… I’ve recently taken a break from work (teaching) to focus on a strong desire to write a children’s book (an idea born about 8 yrs ago). After several months of developing my main character, I have recently finished my first book and am now eager to start the next (same character but different story). I’m considering attending the August meeting in hopes to gain advice and better direction in how to find a trustworthy illustrator, and from there, look in to publishing. If you have any advice, I openly welcome it… Thank you in advance.

    Sincerely, Jackie Turgeon Aspiring future children’s author

      Hi Jackie,

      Writers groups are a great way to improve your work, understand the industry, and find camaraderie among kindred spirits. Please feel free to attend a meeting as all of our meetings are open to anyone who writes for pleasure or profession and even newbies who want to discover the joys of putting words on paper. I look forward to seeing you!
