een inspirerend boek om zelf een schrijfgroep op te ztten. Van de schrijfster van A Writer's Book of Days, hét schrijfverenboek!
A fabulous guide for groups who want to start a writer's workshop. It goes over all the many issues than can derail the best intentions in an easy to digest format. I recommend it often.
Very inspiring! I am yearning to join a writing group now!
