A New Blog: Targhee Writers

They say it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

And I don’t know nobody.

And when you know nobody, it’s hard to find other people willing to read the things you write.

That’s why I’m starting Targhee Writers.

Who We Are: Well, right now, me. Maybe my wife if she’s got the time. Which she doesn’t. And maybe Shawn, if I can talk him into it, which I probably can. And our three kids, who have started writing stories and, in the case of our ten-year-old, comic strips.

Want to join? Just barge on in. No fees. Never been published but want to join a group of writers who want to read what other people are writing? We’re your group.

Who We’re Not: Snobs. Want to join a writing group so you can go to retreats and wine tastings and such? Don’t bother us. We’re too busy writing. And reading what each other write.

And when we say write, we don’t just mean words on the page. Do you write graphic novels? Come on in. tell stories with photos? Come on in. Do you write with light as Pablo Picasso did? Talk to us. We’re interested. Or I’m interested. That’ll have to do until there’s enough of us to be an “us.”

What'll we do?

Simple. We'll read and/or look at each others' stuff. We'll say what we think. We'll offer suggestions, criticisms, whatever is needed to make what's good into something that's great. Then we'll help each other craft query letters and do what we all want to do eventually: Get published.

If you're interested, drop me a line at misterfweem (at), or post a message here. I'll be seeing you soon, I hope.
