Join us at Morgen’s Free Monday Creative Writing Q&A Mentorship live chat

Hello everyone. If you’d like help with your writing, or just love talking about anything writing related, and you’re on Facebook, you’re welcome to join 100+ (and growing) of us at my free weekly live Q&A chat. It’s where members can post their questions and we all pitch in with our answers. We do this throughout the week but I’m (almost) guaranteed to be there from 7pm to 9pm (UK time) – in two hours – every Monday so much quicker replies.

To join us click here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/morgensmondaymentorship, answer the three question (What do you write? / What do you need most help with (if known)? / How can you contribute to the group?) then wait for me to approve you. See you there!

I also run a free anonymous (only I know who’s who) email critique swap for flash fiction, short stories or novel extracts – see Morgen’s (Free) Email Critique Group. There are also links on that page to non-fiction, script and poetry swaps.
