Please help me (and our fellow writers) by letting me know about your Vermont writing group or conference.
When we first moved back to Vermont I was trying to find a writer’s group to connect with and it wasn’t easy. I did eventually find one through some round-about internet and email networking. Yesterday I noticed someone found my blog by searching for “Rutland, VT writer’s groups” which made me think I should do an informational post. I would love to meet more writers in this area, so if you are reading this post because you are searching for a group of like-minded people, please contact me!
I will add more as I discover them and if anyone would like to add to this list, please feel free to leave the info in the comments.
