A North Carolina Writers Group



Lack of a North Carolina volunteer led me to this group, North Carolina Writers Network http://ncwriters.org .  The membership fees for this group are a little higher than some and less than others.  That membership offers the usual discounts for conferences and classes that most writers group’s offer and the benefits of local support if you live in NC but that’s not a requirement.  
They’ve got an event in November which, in my opinion, is a great time to visit North Carolina so check it out on their website listed above.

Fall Conference 2017 -November 3-5, Wrightsville Beach
The Fall Conference attracts hundreds of writers from around the country and provides a weekend full of activities that include lunch and dinner banquets with readings, keynotes, tracks in several genres, open mic sessions, and the opportunity for one-on-one manuscript critiques with editors or agents. Conference faculty include professional writers from North Carolina and beyond. Held every year in a major hotel, the conference rotates annually. 

The Network's Mission
The North Carolina Writers' Network connects, promotes, and serves the writers of this state.  We provide education in the craft and business of writing, opportunities for recognition and critique of literary work, resources for writers at all stages of development, support for and advocacy of the literary heritage of North Carolina, and a community for those who write.  The North Carolina Writers’ Network believes that writing is necessary both for self-expression and a healthy community, that well-written words can connect people across time and distance, and that the deeply satisfying experiences of writing and reading should be available to everyone.
