    How to Start and Run a Writing Group with Joseph Scapellato

    The idea of this one-session class is to jumpstart a writing group—an independent community of writers who regularly meet (virtually or in real life) to give helpful, generative feedback on one another’s work, to offer friendship, support, and advice, and to make the journey of being a writer more doable.
