Pine Island Writers is a group of local authors who meet to encourage writers of every genre, ability, and experience to grow and inspire their writing life.

We meet virtually every Mondays from 7:00-9:00 pm to critique each other’s writing in a safe, creative space, with the purpose of improving our work. After listening to the piece that an author has chosen to present, members will provide respectful and thoughtful responses.

Every other Thursday from 7:00-9:00 pm we hold a virtual writers cafe, where we discuss the writing life, write in private rooms, or discuss our work in more detail.

If you are interested in trying out a critique session or the café, please fill out the contact form and we will send you a link to sit in a meeting to see how it works. You may attend two meetings before having to become a member. Check out the member benefits as well.

Please read our critique and café guidelines to make sure you understand our format.
