No two writers’ groups are the same but they do have things in common. This handbook includes a discussion of points that should be considered before setting up a new writers’ group, as well as a series of short first-person essays – Group Encounters – based around the meetings of a fictionalised group. In addition, the final section – A Critter’s Companion – includes advice on how to deal with receiving critique, and an essay on how to critique poetry.
