How joining a writing group improves your writing.

Winfield Strock III

Support groups bring like-minded people together for the improvement of all. Whether you’re kicking a bad habit or starting a good one it helps to have help. Sharing with other writers helps define what it means to be a writer. Experiencing others’ fears and failures, triumphs, and growth- these help shorten the journey to success and ease the pain that naturally comes from learning something new. But not all groups are created equal.

If like me, you want to improve and publish your work, you’ll want constructive criticism from your group. In some, they smile, nod, and offer vague and positive feedback. They don’t want to offend any more than they seek to improve. I need to know what sucks, how it sucks, and what you liked so I can remember to keep it. Continue reading

Southbound Brewing Co. and local authors help raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire.

Tonight Southbound Brewing Company is hosting our first Savannah Books and Brews. The goal is to help raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire (also known as the Ronald McDonald House, and more lovingly, the House).

The local authors are RM Hamrick, Joshua Vasquez, Winfield Strock III, Chip Lewis and I will be there as well 🙂

Books and Brews combines authors and adult beverages raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire and to promote literacy in our community.

Our goal is to host a meet and greet at Southbound Brewing Company on a quarterly basis to generate interest in the community and to raise donations to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire. Our first event is Friday, November 16th from 6pm – 9pm!

Each meet up will be free and open to the public. We will have a donation jar to help raise funds. We will host two to three authors, where attendees can mix and mingle and talk about books, enjoy a brew, take a tour of the brewery, and raise funds for a good cause.

By working with both Southbound Brewing Company and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire, Savannah Books and Brews offers an event that other larger cities like Atlanta are hosting, promoting literacy in our community, and helping out families in need who use the house.

I want to give a huge shout out to Southbound Brewing Company for hosting Books and Brews to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire.
