About this blog
This blog exists to celebrate and promote Kentucky's local writing groups, their members and their writing. Its goal is to publicize those writing groups and provide them a place to share their accomplishments -- and those of their writers.
I plan to feature publications by writing groups and their members. I also hope to feature and publicize special events and contests sponsored by Kentucky's writers groups or open to their members.
I hope to have descriptions soon of each of the Commonwealth's writing groups and links to their sites. In time, I also hope to have interviews with some of their members.
I also hope to feature the libraries and librarians who are active in promoting writing groups and writers. Libraries perform many essential functions and help to create a sense of community. I'm glad to see that so many libraries believe that fostering writing groups and writing is part of their mission. Writing, after all, is what creates all those books, journals, magazines and newspapers.
Gary Reed is a member of the Covington Writers Group and the Boone County Writers Group.
Although writers groups are little known outside of the writing community, he believes they are important and somewhat amazing.
Please subscribe to the newsletter and use the comment section or email to provide updates on your writing group and it's members.
The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Before becoming a writer, Gary Reed had an exciting legal career, handling high-stakes litigation and investigations around the country. He wrote and spoke frequently on professional issues.
Gary Reed is the author of two novels, The Blockbuster Drug and A Fatal Cell Phone Video.
I encourage each of Kentucky's writing groups to get in touch and to contribute this website. Let me know about your group, its website, where it meets and when, and if it has any special events planned.
I also encourage writing groups and their members to let me know when the group itself or one of its writers publishes something or wins an award.
