We’re all writers here.
Writing is hard. We know. We’re doing it too. And we’re here to support each other.
TWS is exclusive to writers for children through young adult. We critique picture books, early readers, middle grade, and ya novels.
We talk and critique entirely online.
We have a private Slack which lets us talk and share our writing. Slack allows us to create channels so that we can separate ourselves into groups to focus on the skills associated with writing for each age group.
We share an organized Google Drive for feedback.
Whether your work is done, barely halfway through, or only one scene long, there’s a folder for that. Different lengths need different eyes.
Ideas are important. That’s why we protect them with an NDA at sign up.
The idea monster is important. Whether it’s fully fleshed out or just hatched. The NDA is kept on file to protect authors and their ideas. You can not join TWS without filling out the NDA.
We host monthly events and workshops
Workshops start on the first Saturday of the month and end on the last Saturday of the Month. Every second Saturday at 8pm ET / 7pm CT / 6pm MT / 5pm PT we have an Idea Bounce/Write-In where we pitch new ideas or talk about where we are stuck in our own work to get feedback from the group. The last Friday of the month is Write Drunk; Edit Sober, where we all get online, have a chat, do some writing, and talk each other up.
