The Writing Group.
“The main thing is to surround yourself with others who are writing so that it feels normal. When you see other people writing, you know you can do it, too.”
Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage.

'The Best Writers Group Online.'
Sally Bailey. Lecturer of Creative Writing and Member.
“This is a group of writers who are serious about what they do but not about who they are (which means there’s always room for a bit of light hearted banter as well as solid support). I have learnt so much about myself as a writer in the last few months and gained so much in confidence. Cannot praise The Novelry highly enough.”
Sara Bailey, Orkney.
