We’re a great bunch of people who just love to write, in all styles, forms, and genres. Maybe you’ve seen folks in Kamloops coffee shops dive into their bags for their electronic devices to tap out a few sentences, because to lose the great wording that’s running through their brains would be a tragedy. Those folks may be members of the Kamloops-based Interior Authors Group. If not, maybe they should be!
What do we do? We meet monthly to support and lift each and to learn and grow in the craft of writing together. There is a workshop at each monthly meeting and guest speakers will come and knock our socks off every now and again too. Meetings are also a place to come and read and discuss your work for feedback. It’s such a boost talking about your current project with other fellow writers.
We’re poets, we’re song writers, we’re bloggers, we’re screenplay creators, we’re literary authors, romance authors, mystery authors and every other genre and sub-genre you can come up with. We’ve got some truly talented non-fiction writers, and even a few journal writers have been know to be at a meeting or two. We’re veteran authors, debut authors and a whole bunch of people who aspire to get that first book into print.
So if you want to learn more about the craft of writing, or about publishing and self-publishing, or if you want to rub shoulders with veteran authors who’ve made careers out of their skills with words, or even if you just want to improve your own story telling, come check us out!
