Hi Cricket! Nice to know you! I live here in Tucson, as well, and I have been trying to find local writers groups, but to no avail. They exist online, but when I've tried to contact them, no one has ever responded.
Hi Jeffrey, I belong to the Saguaro Romance Writers group and am looking to a mystery writers group now since my writing is leaning more in that direction now. I found the groups by looking into the national group and they led me to the local chapter. As far a true writing group that actually works on writing and helping each other, I haven't found any of those either. I have to admit I haven't tried very hard. Just don't have the time. Good luck to you. What do you write?
