Founded in June 2008, Charlotte Writers is a group dedicated to helping and encouraging fiction writers of all levels, experiences, and genres in pursuing their dreams of publication. For beginning writers we offer feedback and methods in helping to make sure that your first steps into writing are positive ones, while for the more experienced writers we offer substantive critiques to help sharpen your work on its way to submission for publication. We have writers who have professional credits to their name from both big and small publishing houses, whether they are short stories or full-length novels. We also have writers who have literary representation. With this large swath of experience, Charlotte Writers can offer you guidance to reaching your goals.
