At the end of June I’m moving back to my hometown so that my kid can grow up near his grandparents. In addition to wonderful food not available in North Dakota (Hungry Hobo sandwiches, Harr& is-style pizza, Chik-Fil-A and Panera and Noodles & Co. and Red Robin and Outback and Sonic and Steak-n-Shake, for example – yes, I love food), I’ve also found a writing community – the Midwest Writing Center.
And this isn’t just a small group that meets every month to critique members’ works. Lots of critiquing groups, and people offering workshops on various writing topics, and book discussions…. Everything that a developing writer needs.
Unfortunately their annual writing conference is happening the weekend that I’ll be moving, but there’s always next year.
I’m really looking forward to joining and getting involved when I get settled!
