Local writing groups

The Journey is our Naperville region's writing group. We organize social events for the writers, have regular online (jabber) chats, do some critiquing and at least one major writing project (e.g., a short story anthology like Infinite Monkeys (2009)).

Related Writing Events

List initially compiled by Atalanta, the ML from NY::Elsewhere. See this OpenOffice.org document. Also see this great list on the JanNoWriMo site.
