March 2023 Events
Let's Write Together!
Let’s write together! Every month I’m offering live Zoom events for you to join to grow as a writing while in community. Each month I release the calendar of live Zoom events to let you know when that’s happening. Here’s the rundown of scheduled events for the month of March 2023. There’s been a lot going on on the home front, since the end of February, hence the very late start here in the community. Thsnk you for your patience!

What it Looks Like
Special Events This Month
You may notice some colorful squares on this month’s calendar. Those are events new to the community.
CRITIQUE CREW CONVERSATIONS
It’s happening! The first wave of Stop Writing Alone Critique Crew is on its way. Each week we have a Zoom call to focus on one writer’s work. We are sharing WRITING NOTES, PEER LETTERS and we are ASKING LOADS OF QUESTIONS. These are conversations, so you can read that ask critique WITHOUT the rule of silence! As month moves on, I may begin my search for cohort 2 of Critique Crew. If you think you might be interested in joining us, go grab yourself a copy of Craft in the Real World by Mathew Salesses — reading that is your first prerequisite for joining!
THE GREAT SUBSTACK PROMPT CELEBRATION
It’s the second month of my collaboration with the Substack community Fictionistas. Fictionistas is a community for fiction writers who write on Substack (like I do with my Story Hoarder page). Heather Huffman of Sprinkled Inspiration and I are teaming up to bring The Great Substack Prompt Celebration to the Fictionistas crew where we will be inspiring the community to write a new story every month with a prompt that we share with them. It starts with my favorite, a Writing Prompt Party! The information on how you can participate this month can be found here.
