Larry Habegger, Executive Editor of Travelers’ Tales, leads two monthly advanced writing groups. He calls them his Wednesday and Thursday groups. Tonight they’ve challenged each other to a bowling match. That’s right, they’re going lane to lane tonight over at Yerba Buena Bowling Center.
Besides the fun of good gossip, I think it’s important to point out that writing groups aren’t just about getting critique on your stories. It’s about building community and becoming a part of something. Sometimes that leads to extra curricular activities, and often it leads to friendships. Personally, I think that all of these outlets and support are an integral part of a writer’s life. It’s just easier and more fun with community than without it.
Larry’s groups are becoming tight, and besides that, he’s a damn good editor. I don’t know how much his workshops are, or if he has more room in the Wednesday and Thursday night groups, but I am aware that he does have openings in some upcoming classes.
