The Insecure Writer's Support Group Book Club

Writers and Readers,

The Insecure Writer's Support Group Book Club is for writers to read/learn about the writing craft.

We will have quarterly reads. Also, we will have one fiction book selection and one writing craft book selection for you to read. Members can chose to read both books or whichever one they want.

No promo of any kind. Please read the ***INFO*** posts for instructions on posting in folders.

See Book Club/Posting Details for more information about the book club.
