Location: Carrollwood Barnes & Noble, 11802 Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, FL 33618
The TWA Nonfiction Group welcomes writers of all skill levels. non-fiction genres and formats. We may form genre subgroups in the future as participation dictates.
Our goal is to help improve each other’s writing and promote clear, interesting and involving non-fiction writing. We encourage exploration of and experimentation with different techniques and approaches, while keeping the reader’s experience in mind. Writers receive both written and verbal feedback on their manuscripts. Our critiquing format promotes in-depth analysis and encouraging the writer. Our golden rule, adapted from naval guidance on handling LST’s, is “Find out what direction(s) the writer wants to go in, then help him/her/them get there.” Best of all, we have fun in the process. While you are welcome to submit your work to the FICTION Critique Group, and to use storytelling techniques in your non-fiction, experience has taught us that a dedicated non-fiction critique group may be more productive.
