Hey Astoria writers: I have been running what I call the "Queens Writers Fellowship" off and on the last couple of years. It's a fancy name for the extra desk in my office. When I'm home (I'm a travel writer, so it's erratic), I love to have someone come over to work next to me. It helps keep us both off Facebook etc. 

My last "fellow" just left, and I could use another for January. Here's the info. Drop me a note if you're interested. I'm at 30th Ave.

Are there any upcoming meetups?  I just launched the first book in my 5 book series and have begun working on the next.  I would LOVE to meet up with fellow writers to hear about their projects,writing experiences etc.  Feel free to check out the video for my book and I am actively looking for beta readers if anyone's interested.  See you guys soon! -Hajee

Maybe "Writer's Block" isn't the best name for this group... seems like we've gotten a bit stumped...  Who wants to get together and get inspired?  All in favor say "Aye"!

I would definitely be interested in joining a writing workshop.

Haji, if you're serious about starting a workshop, we should pass the word around on the board.


Any other writers feeling inspired ?

I would love to help organize workshops or join any currently in process!  I have tons of ideas and need to start focusing on a few and getting them OUT THERE!
