Meeting weekly since July 2012, ASWG is a by-writers-for-writers group that provides encouragement, critiques and an incentive to keep words flowing.

Member goals vary from improved craft to traditional publication to indie publication to completion of novel-length manuscripts. Most importantly, we all love a really good story.
