Welcome to the Cascade Writers' Group website!
This site was set up to allow group members to communicate with each other, collaborate on work, post interesting articles and helpful advice, and basically be able to enjoy the benefits of a writing group without having to wait for the next group meeting.
I've started some discussion forums on topics I believe will help get the ball rolling. I have explored the site thoroughly and know pretty much everything about how it works, so if you have any questions or can't figure out how to do something, let me know and I'll try to help!
Some of my general advice to get you started is:
- Complete your profile as soon as possible. This includes posting a picture so everyone will be able to associate your name with your face. (Try to make your picture as small as you can in terms of file size because we have a limited amount of file storage space with the free account. If you need help with this, send me your picture in an email and I'll reduce the file size for you and send it back to you so you can post it to your profile.)
- Choose to receive updates on the forums you are interested in so you will know when updates have been made to your topics of interest.
- Look at and join any of the subgroups that you fit with your writing type.
- Add a goal or two to the "objectives" section of your profile so other group members will know what you are working towards and can offer advice, help, and/or encouragement.
I hope this will help to improve our group and each of it's members!
