Penny Legg is setting up a 'Writing Buddies' group, which will meet at the Southampton store of Borders. It's first meeting will be at 2pm on Friday 22nd May, so if you're in the area, why not pop in and say hello?
Meeting fellow writers is so important in this game, because it offers a chance to chat, swap ideas and also learn. Writers up and down the country face similar problems, and discovering how others cope with the problems that you face, can be a real boon.
Penny's hoping that this will be a relaxed environment, where writers, both professional and non-professional can meet up for a chat, swap ideas, news and views. The good news is that Borders are keen to support the group, so hopefully the first meeting will be the start of many.
And anyway, if you call yourself a real writer, what excuse do you need to go into another bookshop!

Good luck Penny!
