Part instruction, brainstorming, motivation, & critique, our supportive group meets the second and fourth Saturday of the month and is user-friendly, inspirational, and empowering. Every woman deserves a room of her own.

"As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move...similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle."~Honore de Balzac

Interstices: An Anthology

Congratulations to the members of Saturday Mornings • Coffee & Critique who appear as contributors in the just released Interstices: An Anthology that features stories, memoirs, essays, and poems. Several in the group took advantage of this opportunity from Windflower Press to showcase their work as they continue to build a platform.

And that brings us to the topic of networking. I suppose it's possible to create great work while isolated in a room somewhere and never getting any feedback on a work in progress and I guess some people become successful without any help from their friends but I'm realizing more and more the power of numbers.

In order to improve our writing, we need critique. That means networking. In order to put on an event, like a writing salon, we need to network too. The only way to produce an anthology is to gather together the most talented people you can think of and the only way to throw a book launch is to network, too.

Writers need other writers. The Orange County Anthology brings together writers in a unique and positive way through publication and events.

So congratulations again to those in the anthology. There is a network surrounding you.
