Area writing group hosts open discussions, critique

SOUTH NEW BERLIN – A guild of area writers who recently organized a new online group called “Chenango County Writers” have made good on their intentions of turning a social media-conceived activity into a face-to-face workshop for writers.

“I started Chenango County Writers to meet new people who share my love of creative writing,” said Megan Martinez.

According to Martinez, the formation of a “support group” works twofold, the obvious being a collaboration of creativity. But more importantly, she said it encourages camaraderie in a craft that can be inherently isolating.

Said Martinez, “Writing can be a very lonely activity, and I knew that I couldn’t be the only [writer] in the area who felt that way.”

Martinez maintains that one of the greatest benefits of hosting the group is that it allows her and her fellow writers to have a place where creative and motivational support, inspiration, and other useful information can be found outside of Google, Facebook and other online resources.
