If there’s something strange in your writing-hood, who you gonna call? Well, if you are in the Charlotte, North Carolina area you don’t want to call Ghostbusters, but call The Charlotte Writing Academy. I had the pleasure of attending one of the organization’s monthly meetings on Saturday. Facilitator, Debra Funderburk led writing exercises and engaging discussions about the art of writing, and what to expect if one wants to pursue their writing and publishing endeavors.
The Charlotte Writing Academy formerly known as “Queen City Writers Group” was developed to educate, network, and promote writers through monthly meetings and workshops. The mission of the academy is to support writers of all skill sets.
Have you ever wondered what steps you need to take in order to jumpstart your writing? Or how to choose your book design and layout? Do you know how to become a disciplined and dedicated writer? If any of these questions run through your mind, you are not alone. Sometimes writing can feel like a long, lonely journey, but you have a lot of comrades walking on that same road as you are. On the third Saturday of each month, The Charlotte Writing Academy meets at Caribou Coffee in the Park Road Shopping Center, from 10:00-12:00p.m. If you’re in the vicinity, be sure to stop in and join the discussions so many novice and veteran writers are taking advantage of.
